Year of the Family

The “Amoris Laetitia Family Year” is an initiative of Pope Francis, which aims to reach every family around the world through several spiritual, pastoral and cultural proposals that can be implemented within parishes, dioceses, universities, ecclesial movements and family associations.

The experience of the pandemic has highlighted the central role of the family as the domestic Church and the importance of community ties between families. Such ties make the Church an authentic “family of families” (AL 87).

The family deserves a year of celebration, so that it can be given a central place in the commitment and care of every pastoral and ecclesial reality.
