The hope-filled voices of young people continue to make a significant impact in shaping the future of our Church and global community, just as the early followers of Jesus did at Pentecost, when they were inspired by the Holy Spirit to launch out and boldly proclaim the good news of the Risen Christ to all the world.

Recently, a meeting of young Catholics from around the world met at the Vatican to prepare a document for the upcoming Synod on Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment. Their message, while challenging the leadership and older members within the Church to greater engagement and partnership, was characterised by a grounded sense of hope and vision for the future.dd

“We envision greater opportunities, of a society which is coherent and trusts us. We seek to be listened to and to not merely be spectators in society but active participants. We seek a Church that helps us find our vocation, in all of its senses. Furthermore, sadly not all of us believe sainthood is something achievable and that it is a path to happiness. We need to revitalize the sense of community that leads us to a sense of belonging.” (Pre-Synodal Document).
