The Pre-Synodal Meeting of young people took place at the Vatican, 19-24 March 2018, in preparation for the 15th General Ordinary Assembly of the Synod of Bishops on Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment. Two Canadian young adults participated as the delegates of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops: Ms. Emilie Callan and Mr. Jacob Jason Genaille-Dustyhorn. The Pre-Synodal Meeting gathered over 300 young people from all around the world, most of whom were Catholic, but a number of whom, at the request of Pope Francis, included other Christians as well as non-believers who are searching.
