Pope calls for views of Melbourne Catholics on the family
Pope Francis has invited parishioners from every diocese in the world, including the Archdiocese of Melbourne, to participate in a worldwide Catholic questionnaire on the many challenges facing the family today. The questionnaire covers questions on: faith in family life, marriage, divorce, annulment, same sex unions, natural family planning and the participation in sacraments as part of family life. Answers will be collated at a diocesan, national and international level and presented to the Bishops at the
Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops set for October 2014 and themed: Pastoral Challenges of the family in the context of evangelisation.
The Life, Marriage & Family Office at the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne will be collating responses for Melbourne.
All responses to the questionnaire (available in hard
copy at the church or by email on request) must be
received no later than Friday 6 December.
To participate visit: www.cam.org.au/synod (you can complete the survey online here)
To also have your response included in the parish response please email your response to mooroolbark@cam.org.au before 18th November
