ADULT SURVEY (over 30)


Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment
Pope Francis has called for the next Synod of Bishops in fall 2018 to be on the topic of Young People, The Faith and Vocational Discernment, to discuss how the Church can better support young people in living their faith and discerning their mission in life. To help prepare for this Synod, the Pope and Bishops are asking both Catholics and non-Catholics across the world to share their experience. This survey will also help support our own Archdiocesan Youth Office in supporting and engaging young adults in our archdiocese.
Our Archdiocese of Kingston Youth Ministry Commission has selected some key questions from the questions posed by the preparatory document and reworded them to encourage and invite responses from young people (16-29 years of age) in our Archdiocese. There is also a separate survey for adults over the age of 29 that support young adults (youth ministers, teachers, parish staff, parents, parishioners, etc.) These responses will be gathered by the Youth Office and summarized. Archbishop Brendan O’Brien will submit our Archdiocesan report to Rome this fall 2017.

“The Church (also) wishes to listen to your voice, your sensitivities and your faith; even your doubts and your criticism. Make your voice heard, let it resonate in communities and let it be heard by your shepherds of souls.”
