In October 2018, bishops from around the world will, once again, gather in Rome for a Synod. The topic of this meeting is “Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment”.
Proclaiming the joy of the Gospel is the mission of the Church and all the synods are geared towards this mission. Now, the Church wants to see how she can lead young people to recognize and accept the call to the fullness of life and love, and to ask young people to help in identifying the most effective ways to announce the Good News today.
And so, the Church around the world has been asked to speak to young people. We began that process here at S+L with a forum with young people in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Windsor, Montreal and Quebec City.
With Taking the Pulse we want to continue those conversations with more young people.
It is our hope that, by listening to young people, the Church will once again hear the Lord speaking in today’s world and can glimpse the paths the Church is called to follow
