For the purpose of this SYNOD, The Vatican has defined the age of young people to be those aged between 16-29 years old. In his letter to young people in 2017, Pope Francis told them 

"I wanted you to be the centre of attention, because you are in my heart. Today, the Preparatory Document is being presented, a document which I am also entrusting to you as your “compass” on this synodal journey."

This journey begins for us now. 

Some of the key themes for this Synod encourage us to LISTEN and REFLECT, to SHARE and INTERPRET and to DECIDE and CHOOSE.
