Synod on Young People 2018
This year’s theme and chosen speakers highlighted two things: Cardinal DiNardo’s desire to focus on prayer among young adults and the upcoming Synod 2018 on Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment, which Cardinal DiNardo will attend in October.
Pope Francis has dedicated the 15th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops. . . to be focused on the theme of "Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment." It will be held in Rome in October 2018.
Pope Francis noted: "The theme, an expression of the pastoral care of the Church for the young, is consistent with the results of the recent Synod assemblies on the family and with the content of the post-Synodal apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia. Its aim is to accompany the young on their existential journey to maturity so that, through a process of discernment, they discover their plan for life and realize it with joy, opening up to the encounter with God and with human beings, and actively participating in the edification of the Church and of society."
