Survey for Vatican Study on Ministry to Families
"In October 2014, Pope Francis will convene an Extraordinary Synod, or a special conference, of bishops from around the world in Rome to review and discuss Pastoral Challenges to the Family in the Context of Evangelization. To prepare for the conference, the Holy See has asked bishops to respond to a series of questions about challenges in ministering to families today after receiving feedback from others in their dioceses. The Most Reverend Robert N. Lynch asks priests, deacons, religious and the lay faithful of the diocese to be a part of this important initiative by taking a survey. The survey was developed based on topics sent from the Holy See.
Among the challenges explored in the survey are: cohabitation outside of marriage, same-sex unions, adoption of people in same-sex unions, marriage of people in varying religious affiliations, single-parent families, polygamy, pastoral programs for engaged and married couples, and the negative impact of the media on the meaning of Christian marriage and family. The survey is anonymous and the honest input of those throughout our diocese is most appreciated. The survey has been designed so that you can forward it to family members, friends, co-workers, neighbors and others who might not have easy access to it. We also welcome those who might attend Mass occasionally or perhaps not at all to provide their feedback through the survey."*
