We want to hear from young people and those who support them

Every few years, the Pope invites Bishops from around the world, and other advisors, to meet with him to discuss an important topic in the life of the Church. This is called a Synod. In 2018, the General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops will cover the theme "Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment". 

The preparatory document for the Synod provides an inspiring context for the General Assembly as it challenges the Church to listen, accompany and help young people hear God’s call.

The Home Mission Office and the National Office for Vocation are teaming up to prepare for this special event in the life of the Church.

Pope Francis wants young people and those who engage with them to take part in the consultation process. Remember - your voice matters!

Separate Poll

If you're a parent, teacher, chaplain, youth worker or priest who regularly engages with young people aged between 13 and 29 years old, please contact synod2018@cbcew.org.uk asking to be sent the poll that applies to you.
