CTM Update

Pope Francis wants to hear from you! In preparation for the upcoming 2018 Synod* on Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment, the bishops have created a survey for youth ages 16-29, available at 

2018 Youth Synod survey link

Please take a few minutes to complete it! The survey is available in English, Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese, and the language can be adjusted from the drop box located at the top right hand side of the webpage. 

*What is a synod? A synod historically is a council of a church, usually convened to decide an issue of doctrine, administration or application. In modern usage, the word often refers to the governing body of a particular church, whether its members are meeting or not.
