Pastoral Challenges to the Family In the Context of Evangelization
The Vatican survey was distributed at Mass this weekend. The introduction seems rather long, and the questions may seem complex for the average person. The responses are supposed to be limited to so many words, although I'm sure some people will need to write essays in response to each topic, which makes me wonder who will review all those responses? As it stands, it will mean a lot of reading and data.
It's fine if people want to do it. It's nice the Vatican is interested.
I think I'll pass.
Besides - the web site address on the handouts must be wrong - I can't pull up the document - I can get the Australian site, the U.K. site, as well as other parish sites - but not 'our' site. Links to other interested parties sponsoring the survey also pop up:
This project is sponsored by the following members of Catholic Organizations for Renewal (COR):

I have my doubts as to how informative the survey results will be.
