World Meeting of Families
Survey & Consultation Day for the Synod on the Family
The Bishops of the United States are asking each Diocese to conduct a “consultation” with the faithful in preparation for the upcoming “Synod on the Family” which will be held in Rome in October, 2015. The Bishops recognize that those who are living out their vocation to marriage and family are in the best position to advise them on these matters. Therefore, the Diocese is conducting an on-line survey and inviting all members of the Diocese to participate. To join the “consultation”, simply go to the Diocesan website at www.diobr.org and click on the “2015 Family Synod Survey”. You need not answer all of the questions for your responses to be tabulated. At the end of the survey, click the “submit” button and your responses will be added to those sent to the Bishops. Take a few moments to contribute to this important project.
The Diocesan Consultation Day itself will take place on Saturday, March 7th, from 9am-1pm in the Main Auditorium of the Catholic Life Center.
