Parents/Family Synod Survey
Welcome!
Pope Francis has called for a Synod (which is a gathering of bishops from all around the world) to take place in October 2018 focused on the topic of "Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment." The bishops will discuss how the Catholic Church can better support young people in living their faith and discerning their mission in life.

To help Pope Francis and the Bishops prepare for this Synod, they are asking both Catholics and non-Catholics around the world to share their experiences. Not only will your input help Pope Francis prepare for the Synod, it will also help our local Catholic Diocese of Youngstown to discern how we can better engage and support young people on their journey of faith.
Thank you for assisting us!
