The Vatican released a Preparatory Document with questions for reflection, and asked that dioceses throughout the world answer these questions to provide feedback on their local experience. This feedback will be gathered from dioceses across the world and form the starting point for the Synod conversation in October 2018. The voices of youth and young adults speak of the challenges of being Catholic today and of the desire to be connected to Church, each other and their community.

To assist you in hosting a Listening Session and collecting feedback from your young people, the Office of Youth, Young Adult and Campus Ministries has prepared the following resource packet and Listening Session questions for youth (ages 14 – 18) and young adults (ages 18 – 39).  It is our suggestion to host separate sessions for youth or young adults.
