Pope Francis has called for an extraordinary Synod of Bishops, with a topic of Pastoral Challenges to the Family in the Context of Evangelization. The preparatory document for that Synod included a questionnaire. If you would like to provide input to the Bishops in advance of that Synod, you are invited to do so using that questionnaire. The time frame is narrow, and responses must be returned by Sunday, December 1st. There are several options:
Download the questionnaire in Microsoft Word format here: Synod on the Family – Questionnaire. Fill it out, save it, and email the document (as an attachment) back to us here at St. Patrick – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Download the document in pdf form here: Family Synod Questionnaire. Print it, fill it out, and mail it back to us at:
St. Patrick Church
406 E. Pinhook Road
Lafayette, LA 70501
For those desiring the simplicity of an online survey, that is not available from the U.S. Bishops. It is possible to use the survey provided by the Catholic Organizations for Renewal, results of which will be sent to directly to the USCCB. (Use of this form does not constitute approval of the sponsoring organizations.)
Feel free to answer any or all of the questions. Again, keep in mind that responses must be received by the beginning of December.
