In October 2018, the Synod of Bishops will gather in Rome to consider the issue of ‘Young People, Faith, and Vocational Discernment.’
In the words of the Holy Father:
“The Church has decided to examine herself on how she can lead young people to recognise and accept the call to the fullness of life and love, and to ask young people to help her in identifying the most effective ways to announce the Good News today. By listening to young people, the Church will once again hear the Lord speaking in today’s world.”
In preparation for the assembly in 2018, this survey is issued to garner the thoughts and opinions of young people aged between 13 and 29. Cardinal Vincent Nichols and the Bishops of England and Wales would like to hear from young people so that they can form an overview of the experiences of young members of the Church.
Deadline for submission is Monday 5th June 2017.
