Thanks for taking the time to visit.
Pope Francis has dedicated the 15th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops. to be focused on the theme of Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment. It will be held in Rome in October 2018.
"The theme, represents an expression of the pastoral care of the Church for the young. 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”.
As part of this process the Pope has invited young people to share their voice from a variety of social contexts from around the world, so as to better understand what it is like to be a young person living in the world today; the hopes for the kind of people they wish to become, the joys, the challenges, the worries and the uncertainties. The ‘Pope is listening’ and he wishes to understand and explore the issues that isolate young people and marginalise them as well as better understand to what young people may feel a sense of belonging.
