Extraordinary Synod on the Family Questionnaire Vatican 2014
Extraordinary Synod on the Family
[posted 13 November] In preparation for the Synod in October 2014, the Vatican has sent out a questionnaire to obtain views on a wide range of subjects related to the Church's teachings and their promulgation, understanding and acceptance. It seeks views on topics such as family planning, same sex unions, co-habitation and divorced and remarried Catholics.
The Catholic Bishops of England and Wales have made the questionnaire available through its website http://www.cbcew.org.uk/ This is the first time that the views and experiences of all members of the Church have been sought by Rome. In particular they are looking for inputs from the laity as well as from parishes.
I encourage you to take the time to read and complete the questionnaire. Our Parish Pastoral Council and the Deanery Pastoral Council are also working to provide responses. Questionnaires are available at the back of the church.
