The church wants to hear from you!
The Vatican has launched an online, anonymous survey for youth and young adults. All between the ages of 16-19 are invited to participate and answer questions regarding their state in life, society, and which topics - promoting peace, defending human life, evangelization, defending truth, the environment - they feel are most urgent for the church to address.
To participate, go to Synod Questionnaire site, and set language to English before beginning.
