Millennials: Do you have something to say to the bishops? All young people encouraged to take survey before Synod on Family in 2018

Pope Francis has dedicated the 15th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops to be focused on the theme of “Youth, Faith, and Vocational Discernment.” It will be held in October 2018.

In preparation for the synod, a survey has been constructed by the Office of the General Secretariat of the Synod, Cardinal Lorenzo Baldisseri, asking the young people of the world to provide some insight into “what is it like to be a young person in the Catholic Church Today.”

Bishop's message: The graces that come from farming and harvesting

I’ve been told that the traditional summer months of vacation that our school age children and teens enjoy each year is a result of our history…as a nation of farmers and ranchers.

Of course, the nation as a whole would be characterized as more urban and suburban than rural in 2017; but in the four deaneries of our diocese, farming and ranching is still a way of life for many.

And I thank God for this.

Why so? Why would this Georgia transplant from the city of Atlanta thank God for rural life in central Louisiana?
