In 2023, the bishops of the universal Catholic Church will meet for a Synod in Rome. The theme will be synodality. The synodalisation of the Catholic Church is a matter close to the heart of Pope Francis. The survey, to which Tomas Halik, Peter Neuner, Anna Hennersperger and myself cordially invite you, is itself a kind of practiced synodality. We hope for widespread participation. The results are intended to familiarise the Synod with views from the people of God and encourage them to engage in bold deliberations and decisions.
If you know someone in your area who would also like to take part, please pass on the following link: https://survey.zulehner.org/index.php/514332?lang=en
The survey is available in German and English. For another language, please use a computer program (e.g. https://translate.google.com/) to translate the questionnaire which you find attached.
Thank you very much for your interest in the development of the universal Catholic Church, which you express by participating in the survey.
On behalf of all of us, Paul M. Zulehner
