Pope Francis has selected the topic, ‘Youth, the Faith and Vocational Discernment‘, for the 2018 International Synod of Bishops. Young people from around the world have been asked to answer a series of questions.

“The consultation will also include all young people
through a website with questions on their expectations and their lives. The answers to
both series of questions will be the basis for drafting the “work-document” or
Instrumentum laboris, which will be the reference point in the discussion of the synod
fathers.” (Preparatory Document, 2017:2-3)
