Synod, National Dialogue and Fifth Encuentro

2018 Synod Prep Doc SummaryThe next general assembly of Catholic bishops will be October 3-28, 2018 in Rome and will take up the theme: “Youth, Faith and Vocational Discernment.” The Synod’s primary aim is to make the whole Church aware of her important and not at all optional task of accompanying every young person, without exclusion, towards the joy of love; secondly, by taking this mission seriously, the Church will be able to reacquire a renewed youthful dynamism; thirdly, it is also important for the Church to take this opportunity to carry out vocational discernment, so as to rediscover how to best respond today to the call to be the soul, light, salt and leaven of our world. To prepare for this 15th Ordinary General Synod, read the following prepatory documents:

Pope Francis has written a preparatory document  and a letter to young people.  There is also a special prayer written for young people. 

The National Dialogue is an initiative for an energized and unified Church committed to forming and engaging youth and young adults as missionary disciples. The three-year process will culminate in inviting those who participate to take action on the insights from the XV Ordinary Synod, V Encuentro.
