The Catholic bishops of the world are planning to meet in October 2018 for the `15th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops.

The theme of this gathering is “Youth, Faith, and Vocational Discernment.”

In preparation for this major synod on youth, Pope Francis wants to gather input from the Catholic faithful. Consequently, the Diocese of Cleveland has made available a survey questionnaire to gather information on the current state of the young in our diocese that will be included as part of the pre-synod discernment document. The survey can be found on the diocesan
website home page, and will be available through Tuesday, August 1st.

All are invited and encouraged to participate by taking this short survey. The bishops of the United States pray that the results of this survey will help them more fully understand the experience of young people in our Church and in our country – their hopes, dreams, fears, and struggles – so that the synod may bear fruit in offering more insight and direction to our ministry with young people.
