Survey for the Ordinary Synod on Family 2015

Go to Survey for the Ordinary Synod on Family 2015

By Family & Life Office Director Ben Smith

In October this year, a number of married couples from around the world gave their testimonies on the joys and challenges of their family life at the Extraordinary Synod on the Family in Rome.

These testimonies were an important part of the dialogue at the Synod that helped focus discussion on how the Church should shape its pastoral efforts to support marriage and family life in the modern world. The Extraordinary Synod was also drawing on responses from a global survey conducted at the end of 2013 that was used to develop the preparatory document for the Extraordinary Synod.

In the spirit of dialogue, Pope Francis wishes to receive further feedback from Catholics on the outcome of the Extraordinary Synod to help the Church prepare for the Ordinary Synod on the Family that is scheduled for 4-25 October 2015. The Catholic Diocese of Parramatta would appreciate some of your time to fill in this survey so that we can help shape the response that the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference will send to Rome in April 2015.
