Alienum phaedrum torquatos nec eu, vis detraxit periculis ex, nihil expetendis in mei. Mei an pericula euripidis, hinc partem.

Pope Francis has  requested worldwide feedback concerning issues that will be addressed at the October 2018 Synod of Bishops on “Young People, Faith, and Vocational Discernment.”

To prepare for the Synod, Pope Francis has written a Letter to Young People (ages 16-29) and the Synod of Bishops has released a preparatory document.
In response to the Holy Father’s request, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rochester invites your consultation through an online questionnaire. To take the questionnaire, click here:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TXNSXP5

Please note: The questions from the preparatory document require a text (written) response. If you would like to review the questionnaire, please read through the preparatory document first. You will be able to skip any of the questions.

Information gathered in our Diocese, through the questionnaire and focus groups, will be included in the final report sent to the Vatican by the U.S. Bishops.

The questionnaire will be open until July 24, 2017.
