Catholic Global Compact on the Family
A Catholic Global Compact on the Family
Launched the process to create a shared program of actions
In celebrating the "Amoris Laetitia Family" Year proclaimed by Pope Francis, the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life (DLFV) and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences (PASS), with the collaboration of CISF (International Center of Family Studies), over the past few weeks launched the process to create a Catholic Global Compact on the Family, in other words a shared program of actions for promoting the family throughout the world in light of the Social Doctrine of the Church.
The Compact involves the Study and Research Centers on family present in the Catholic Universities situated throughout the five continents, by collecting information and research carried out on the cultural and anthropological importance of the family, focusing particularly on family relationships, the social value of the family and good practices of family policies at the international level. The Catholic Global Compact on the Family will be presented as part of a closing event, before the World Meeting of Families in June 2022.
