Thank you for taking time to respond to Holy Father Pope Francis’ call for feedback on the Church. In October of 2018, Catholic bishops and young adults from around the world will meet in Rome for a special gathering, called a synod, to focus on the theme of “Youth, Faith and Vocational Discernment.” The goal is to develop a pastoral guide on how the Church is encountering young adults and how the Church can better help young adults encounter Jesus Christ.  To do that, we need your help.

The Church needs to hear from you.  In preparation for the synod, this survey has been developed to provide a window to learn from young adults and anyone else interested in the Catholic Church — to listen to them, to be with them, and to help them discover God’s plan for them. Your input is crucial as we add the voices from the Diocese of Cleveland to those from around the world to help the Church gain a true understanding of the lives of young adults.

This survey is for people of all ages. It is important, easy, and it won’t take long. Your survey results will be in the conversation at the Synod in Rome. This is your opportunity to send your message to Pope Francis to help young adults enter into a more meaningful encounter with Jesus Christ throughout their lives.
