Provincial Councils

Provincial Councils is the name given to the synods held by the bishops of a single ecclesiastical province, and presided over by the metropolitan. The ecclesiastical superior of the province convokes the council. The resolutions of provincial councils in matters of discipline have legal force only within the limits of their own province. In respect to matters of faith, their resolutions, like those of the national councils, are decisive only when they have been confirmed by the pope and accepted by the whole Church.
