Synod on the Family October 2014
Posted by admin - 26/11/13 06:45PM - - 1/52/53/54/55/5

Our Holy Father, Pope Francis, has called a Synod on the Family for October 2014. The Synod will be pastorally focussed. As such, it will aim to address the real-life challenges of families.

In preparation for the Synod the Bishops have been sent a Preparatory document. It includes an overview of topics such as Family and Evangelisation, The Plan of God, Creator and Redeemer and The Church’s teaching on the Family. The document also included a set of questions to help preparations for the first stage of the Synod. These questions are primarily aimed at the Bishops. Like many others, the Archbishop of Brisbane desires to consult widely on these questions before giving his response.

A questionnaire can be accessed at Synod Survey

It is recommended that you read the Preparatory document before responding to the questions. Download the Preparatory document

Your responses will not only help preparation for the Synod but will be a valuable source for preparing our response to the needs of the Archdiocese.
