In order to assist the bishops of the world in their preparation for the 2015 Synod on The vocation and mission of the family in the Church and contemporary world, the Vatican published a lineamenta which would guide discussion within all episcopal conferences. We were provided with a survey consisting of 46 open-ended questions. In order to make this survey more accessible, we have restructured it in order to get more concrete information about how we, as a diocese, may respond more effectively to the needs of our diocesan families while also supporting all families in their mission as the “domestic church.” Please take the time to fill out the survey located here:
For anyone who wishes to respond to the longer form survey, it is located here:
Thank you in advance for your input. The results of these surveys will be compiled and sent on to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and will inform the Synod fathers as they prepare for their meetings next fall. This information will be invaluable both for the Diocese of Lincoln and for the universal Church. May God bless you and your family.
