BBC invites young people to discuss Rome synod

BBC World Service is inviting young people to take part in the Church’s forthcoming Synod on Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment.

The broadcaster is making a programme during the Synod on Young People in Rome on 17th October from 6pm to 7.30pm. Young people are invited to register to take part in the programme.

An audience and panel of speakers will ask: ‘what do young people want from the Catholic Church?’

The BBC’s Nuala McGovern will be at the Teatro Flaiano as bishops from all over the world gather for the special meeting on Catholicism and the young. She will be joined by young Catholics from across the globe to discuss how the Church should engage with young people and the priorities for young Catholics.
