Let Your voice be heard!

When Pope Francis announced the theme of the next World Synod of Bishops to be held in October of 2018, Young People, Faith, and Discernment for Vocations, he said that he wanted young people's voices to be included in the conversation.

Every diocese around the world is tasked with gathering feedback from young people. The Australian Catholic Bishops have developed this online survey for all Australian dioceses. The information and feedback young people provide will help the Archdiocese of Adelaide and the Australian Bishops Conference develop our reports ahead of the 2018 Synod.
