These documents are the basis for further dicussions:

• Preparatory document: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3KO_z-N3YOidFh0dkNDdkxVMEE

If you are interested please read the documents. The preparatory document concludes with a series of questions. The consultation will also include young people through a website with questions on their expectations and their lives. The answers to both series of questions will be the basis for drafting the “work-document”, which will be the reference point in the discussion of the synod fathers. The pastoral team of the Utrecht parishes invites young people from the age 16-29 to discuss the meaning of the church and faith in their lives. The meeting will take place in September. The invitation will follow. You can express your interest in this meeting at secretariaat@stmartinusutrecht.nl or gj.westerveld@tiscali.nl
