Bishops online survey seeks NZ opinion on marriage and the family

Pope Francis has convened an extraordinary Synod meeting in Rome next year, on marriage and the family and has asked Bishops Conferences worldwide to undertake wide consultation with their people, in order to provide input to the discussion.

The New Zealand Catholic Bishops have put the questions from the Extraordinary Synod document in an online survey format so that Catholics can contribute to the discussion on marriage, the family and related topics.

Archbishop John Dew, President of the New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference, says it is a valuable opportunity for Catholics in Aotearoa New Zealand to contribute to the discussion on marriage, family and related topics by taking time to answer the online survey

He says  the bishops would like to hear from as many people as possible whether people would describe themselves as practising or non-practising or anything in between. It is especially important to them that young people contribute their views to the discussion

Archbishop Dew says people to contribute to as many or as few questions as they wish

Responses may be made anonymously it so desired

The Bishops have asked people to circulate the link to the online survey to any one they know who may like to contribute so that it can reach as many people as possible.

The closing date is before the closing date Monday, 13 January 2014.
