Objective: Family Friendly Policies
A meeting at the Dicastery with representatives of the Federation of Catholic Family Associations in Europe
A few days ago, the Vice President of FAFCE visited our Dicastery with the Secretary General, Nicola Speranza, and the delegate of the Family Associations Forum, Vincenzo Bassi.
The meeting was attended by the Prefect, cardinal Kevin Farrell; the Secretary, Fr. Alexandre Awi Mello; and the delegate for the Family Section, Msgr. Carlos Simón Vázquez.
The representatives of FAFCE have offered to participate in the Dublin World Meeting of Families with a workshop on “Family and Economy,” a theme that is part of the Dicastery’s project “The Family, a Resource for Society.” They also underlined the impact of globalization on the family and reaffirmed the idea of raising public awareness with a view to implementing family-friendly policies.
Finally, the FAFCE invited the Prefect to visit the Federation’s headquarters in Brussels in October 2018, on the occasion of the meeting of the International General Council, which represents 16 European countries.
