They will include all those who want to contribute, especially those who cannot be in Rome, by using social media. A special of series of programmes from the BBC World Service, Heart and Soul Gathering, where they listen to communities in discussion about their faith. Young people can join the conversation on 17 October by registering for a free ticket here or through social media at  This email address is being protected from spambots.
