Preparations continue for vocation synod

Preparations continue for vocation synod

Young people give input in Rome

The forthcoming synod now has a webpage.

The Vatican continues to move forward in preparation for an October synod of bishops with the theme: young people, the faith, and vocational discernment. 

Three hundred young people from around the world gathered March 19-24 in Rome to discuss aspects of the synod themes. They produced a final document reflecting their thoughts on the synod themes.

Pope Francis announced the day before the youth gathering: "I strongly desire that all young people might be the protagonists of this preparation."

An official synod website and Facebook page are now available with many news stories, documents, and details of the preparation.
