Synod 2018 Information: The Catholic Church in England and Wales is consulting with young people and those who regularly engage with them in preparation for a Synod hosted by Pope Francis, in October 2018.  The theme of this Synod is “Youth, Faith and Vocational Discernment”.  The Mega Youth Poll for young people has already been launched, if you work with or care for young people aged between 13-29 we want to hear your view of young people today through a second survey:  It should take between 5-10 minutes to complete this survey however, this may vary depending on whether you care for or work with young people in more than one setting.  Should you have any queries please contact
