2018 synod theme announced

October 06, 2016

The Holy See Press Office has announced that the next Synod of Bishops will be devoted to “youth, faith, and vocational discernment.”

The synod, which will take place in October 2018, will be the 15th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops since Blessed Paul VI’s establishment of the institution in 1965.

The 14th Ordinary General Assembly, which took place in 2015, was devoted to the vocation and mission of the family in the Church and in the contemporary world, and resulted in Pope Francis’s apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia.
