Youth Synod 2018 – the Church wants to listen to you!

The General Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops announced a new website on Tuesday, in preparation for the Ordinary Assembly of the Synod of Bishops in October, 2018. The Synod Assembly is to be dedicated to the role of young people in the life of the Church. A statement from the Secretariat explains that the site is designed to promote the broad, interactive participation of young people from all around the world in preparations for the Assembly.

The new website includes an online questionnaire addressed directly to young people in different languages ​​(Italian, English, French, Spanish and Portuguese). Answers will have to be sent to the General Secretariat by 30 November 2017. The statement goes on to encourage young people especially to visit the site and respond to the Questionnaire, saying that wide and fulsome response will be of great use in the process of preparing the Synod Assembly, and will be part of the extensive consultation that the General Secretariat is doing at all levels of the people of God. The website will be active from June 14th of this year (2017), and may be found at the following address:

We at Holy Trinity encourage all young people, whether in Primary school or University, or recently graduated or started work, to please fill in the survey and have your voices heard at the upcoming Synod. (Just click on the link and set the language to English/Inglese and carry on.)
