Synod on “Youth, faith and vocational discernment”

October 2018 in Rome

Pope Francis has established that in October 2018 the 15th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops will be held, on the theme: “Youth, faith and vocational discernment”.

The Vatican stated that the 2018 Synod will focus on how to:

“accompany youth in their existential path towards maturity through a process of discernment so they can discover their life goals and realize them with joy, opening themselves up to an encounter with God,”

The Pope addressed a letter to the young people of the whole world announcing the convocation of this synod. He writes: "I wanted you to be the centre of attention, because you are in my heart. Today, the Preparatory Document is being presented, a document which I am also entrusting to you as your “compass” on this synodal journey."

The Episcopal Conferences have until October to reply to the questionnaire included in the Preparatory Document sent to them by the General Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops.

With special attention being given to the digital universe and determined to give voice to all the young people of the world without exception, the General Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops is setting up an online questionnaire reserved for young people aged 16 to 29 years. The website will be launched in March and will be located at

In order to ensure proper preparation of the synod, the local Churches are invited to set up initiatives involving young people as soon as possible. The General Secretariat of the Synod is ready to assist those who need it.

TO ALL YOUNG PEOPLE: The Cluny Sisters invite you to explore your faith and discern your vocation with the help of our site. Go to ....
