Calling young Australians
Young people aged between 16 and 29 years are being called to share their views through an online survey published by the Australian Bishops, as part of a national consultation process that will inform an international conversation in Rome next year.
Pope Francis will lead the international conversation at the Vatican and representatives from all over the world will be invited to Rome to share their experiences and views at a meeting in October 2018.
The questions cover a range of topics: the experience of being listened to, using social media and technology, friendships and influences in today’s world, opportunities for engagement with Church activities including outreach programs, youth Masses, community leadership or parish events.
Pope Francis says the Church “wishes to listen to your voice, your sensitivities and your faith; even your doubts and your criticism”.
Young Australians completing the youth survey before it closes at midnight on July 2 have an opportunity to win one of three sets of headphones. If you have any queries, email Synod2018@catholic.org.au
