Pope Francis has called for an Extraordinary Synod of Bishops to be held in October 2014 on the theme: “The Pastoral Challenges of the Family in the Context of Evangelization.”
To prepare for the Synod, the Vatican is consulting with every archdiocese and diocese in the world. The Vatican has issued a Preparatory Document that includes a series of questions.
Archbishop Gomez would like the participation of Catholics in the Archdiocese and has approved this survey, which is based on the questions proposed in the Preparatory Document.
All information provided will remain anonymous and confidential and the results of this survey will not be published but will only be provided to the Synod of Bishops.
The Church’s teachings on marriage and the family can be found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (nos. 1601–1658, 2331–2391). The full Preparatory Document can be found here.
This survey will be available until December 31, 2013.
