Pope Francis has called for an Extraordinary Synod to take place at the Vatican between 5-19 October 2014. Around 150 Synod Fathers will take part in the meeting to discuss the 'pastoral challenges of the family in the context of evangelization' and how best to re-propose the centrality of matrimony and the transmission of faith in the home within the proclamation of the Gospel in our contemporary society. Catholics have been invited to read the preparatory documents for the Synod and take part in a questionnaire (consultation) to assist the Bishops. The closing date for responding to the questionnaire is 6th December. more >>
