Synod of Bishops questionnaire available for participation
Pope Francis has called for an Extraordinary Synod of Bishops in October 2014 on the theme: The Pastoral Challenges of the Family in the Context of Evangelization. The General Secretary of the Synod of Bishops invites consultation on this topic to help with its preparations.
A Preparatory Document has been issued by the Holy See to begin this process along with a series of questions. Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr, wishing the clergy and faithful of the Cincinnati archdiocese to join in the consultation, has approved this instrument for local participation.
You may also read the complete Preparatory Document issued by the Vatican by clicking the following link, The Synod of Bishops’ Preparatory Document with Questions: “Pastoral Challenges to the Family in the Context of Evangelization.” After reading a summary on the archdiocesan web page – http://wwwcatholiccincinnati.org — or the complete document, carefully respond to any or all of the questions that follow.
Follow the directions on the survey form to ensure your responses are included in the general report to the U.S.C.C.B. and the Vatican. Here is the link to the survey:
