Synod on Youth


3 - 28 October 2018

Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment

Instrumentum LaborisList of participants | Documento finale

From Oct. 3 – 28, the 15th Assembly of the Synod of Bishops will take place in the Vatican with the theme ‘Youth, faith and vocational discernment’.

In addition to the cardinals and bishops who make up most of the assembly, the Pope has invited ten superiors general of the Union of Superiors General as participating members of the Synod.

For this occasion, the General Superiors of these Congregations were elected at the USG’s assembly: Jesuits, Salesians, Cistercians, Conventual Franciscans, Order of Preachers, Piarists, Paulines, Lasallian Brothers, Redemptorists and Marist Brothers.

Superior general Brother Ernesto Sánchez was chosen from among these ten participants.

Since the Synod’s theme focuses on youth, we think that – for an Institute like ours whose main mission is carried out among young people – both our contribution and our learning from the Synod is important and valuable.

The preparatory process of the Synod has sought to actively involve Episcopal Conferences and Religious Congregations, with a very positive response from various parts of the world.
