2018 Synod on Young People, The Faith Vocational Discernment

This summer 2018 bishops from around the world will gather to discuss young people in the church.  For this “15th Ordinary General Assembly Synod of Bishops on Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment”, Pope Francis has asked for input from all young people from around the world.  Pope Francis and Archbishop Schnurr have specifically asked for input from all 16-29 year olds in our cluster.

Below is a link to the survey itself.  Upon initial arrival to the site, the automatically selected language will likely be Italian.  In the upper right corner of the webpage, there is a drop down menu of language options.  Please select your native language.  The survey itself is anonymous.  However, the bishops and delegates to the 2018 summer gathering in Rome will rely on YOUR input and thoughts.

To the best of my knowledge, this is the first time the Vatican and the Pope himself has asked for direct input and feedback from young people from around the world.  Please take the opportunity for the church to hear directly from you.
