Calling on young New Zealanders to share their voice with the Vatican
Young New Zealanders are being called to share their views about life, faith, and their experience of Church through an online survey published today by the New Zealand Catholic Bishops. The Catholic Church is launching a nation-wide survey for all youth. The survey is part of an international effort by Pope Francis to better understand the lives, attitudes and concerns of young people around the world, in the lead up to the Synod on “Young people, faith and vocational discernment” in Rome, October 2018.
New Zealanders aged 16 – 29 years old are encouraged to answer the survey and tell their friends about it and share the link with their networks. The survey will run for five weeks, with the closing date for responses midnight on Sunday, 27 August 2017.
