Family love: a vocation and a path to holiness


The tenth World Meeting of Families will be held in Rome from 22 to 26 June 2022. The theme of the meeting will be Family Love: a vocation and a path to holiness. In a video message, Pope Francis presented the way it will be held:

“The Meeting will take a multi-centre and widespread form, favouring the involvement of diocesan communities all over the world. Rome will be the main venue, with some delegates of the family pastoral care taking part in the Festival of Families, the Pastoral Congress and the Holy Mass, which will be broadcast all over the world.

On the same days, each diocese will be the centre of a local meeting for its families and communities. In this way, everyone will be able to participate.

I therefore invite the diocesan communities to plan initiatives based on the theme of the Meeting. I ask you to be lively, active, creative, to organise yourselves with the families, in tune with what will take place in Rome.”
