In preparation for the October 2015 XIV Ordinary General Assembly at the Vatican, Bishop Richard J. Malone is asking Catholic priests and their parishioners to discuss and reflect upon the role and place of the family in the world today. These issues, which were the result of the 2014 Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, will be the starting point for the meetings this October that will focus on the vocation and mission of the family in the church and the contemporary world.
The series of six questions explore various topics concerning Catholics worldwide, including divorce and homosexuality. The survey, available on the diocesan website includes a brief explanatory video for each of the questions.
All are encouraged to participate in this survey, located on the left side of the diocesan homepage. The deadline is Friday, April 17. Results from the survey will be compiled for use at the synod meetings.
