Abstract: It is no secret that the domestic church, founded in the family, is in question and flux today in all areas of the world.  In an effort to address and correct this situation, an Extraordinary Synod of Bishops has been called to examine pastoral challenges to the family.  Prior to the Synod, a questionnaire was made available to all Catholics to record their familiarity with Church teaching regarding the family and to determine their ability to adhere to these teachings. The World Union of Catholic Women’s Organisations was honored to be asked to request participation by their member organizations in this important survey.
