The Vatican and Synod of Bishops recently launched a website and survey for youth and young adults. The survey is open for young people all around the world and provides you with the opportunity to communicate, express, and recount who you are and what you want to say about yourself. It is Pope Francis’s desire to make us the “center of attention”. Please help Pope Francis, Catholic Bishops, and the worldwide Catholic church, better understand your age demographic. Your responses are completely anonymous and go directly and confidentially to the Vatican Synod Office.

The state of Texas has changed the relationship of local law enforcement with the Immigration Control Enforcement agency. The bishops of Texas oppose the legislation, S.B. 4, known colloquially as the "anti-sanctuary city" bill, and encourage Catholics throughout Texas to learn more about their own Fourth Amendment rights and how they can make their communities safer and more welcoming to immigrants.
