E te hunga taiohi, maranga mai, kōrero mai. Tēnā koutou, tēnā tātou.

Young people, rise up, speak. Greetings to you, greetings everyone. Pope Francis wants to hear from young people and has asked us to ask you! We would like to hear from all young people, whether you feel closely connected to the Church or not.

He's asking us to listen to the young in our regions before he calls together a meeting, or Synod, next year in Rome to examine how the Church can lead and work with young people.
Pope Francis wants to hear directly from you - "your voice, your sensitivities, and your faith - even your doubts and criticism."

The Synod is particularly aimed at those aged 16 - 29. If you know people who would be willing to respond please pass this survey on. The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete.

You can also help us reach as many young people as possible by sharing the separate Youth Survey through the dedicated Face Book page.
