Catholic Bishops Synod 2018
Rome, October 2018
Pope Francis has announced the topic for the next Catholic Bishops Synod: “Youth, Faith and Vocational Discernment,” which will be held in Rome in October 2018.
According to a Vatican statement, the chosen theme, an “expression of the Church’s pastoral concern for the young,” is consistent with the findings of the synod on the family and Francis’s post-synodal document Amoris Laetitia.
According to the Vatican statement, the topic for the 2018 synod was chosen by the majority of members on the XIV Ordinary Council of the Synod of Bishops, the body charged with drawing up the theme of the next synod.
