Amoris Laetitia Forum
Forum “Where are we with Amoris Laetitia?”
Online meeting for delegates of family pastoral ministry
From June 9-12, 2021, the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life is organising and hosting an online Forum "Where are we with Amoris Laetitia? Strategies for the pastoral application of Pope Francis' Exhortation."
This initiative is part of the "Amoris Laetitia Family" Year, as a moment of dialogue in synodal style on the experiences and perspectives of the implementation of the Apostolic Exhortation and is aimed at supporting the application of Amoris Laetitia in a pastoral and missionary key.
Exclusively those responsible for family ministry at the level of Episcopal Conferences, associations and international ecclesial movements are invited to participate.
The various sessions of the Forum will be based on the experiences of the various ecclesial realities and will deal with marriage preparation, the training of accompanying persons, the education of children, conjugal spirituality, family missionary work and pastoral paths to accompany, discern and integrate fragilities (see attached program).
Given the persistent situation of health emergencies and the consequent regulatory restrictions, the Forum will be held as a webinar. This modality will allow many more people to participate by connecting from all over the world: about 350 delegates, representing 70 Episcopal Conferences and over 30 international associations and movements, have registered to participate.
Given the online modality, the Dicastery will publish, at the end of each day, brief summary notes of the work on the site www.amorislaetitia.va and also on www.laityfamilylife.va. A concluding note will be published at the end of the meeting.
