Youth Synod Recap

Share this article:

The Youth Synod on Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment came to a close on Oct. 28, 2018. In the next few weeks, the English translation of the synod’s final document will be released. When it does, we’ll link to it here. It remains to be seen if Pope Francis will simply ratify the document that was finalized at the synod, or if he will, as has been papal custom, release an apostolic exhortation in the months to come covering the synod’s themes.

In the meantime, we hope you will find the links below helpful.
