Thursday 23rd Family and Love—Chapers 4—6, Cardinal Nichols, Westminster
Friday Family and Hope —Chapters 7—9, Cardinal Zenari, Syria.

Tickets can be booked now,

Things we can do: - Pray, Register on website, Volunteer if it’s not too late, Donate to collection, (on mid June), we are too far away to host a family.  We could do a Pray-a-Thon in our families to try and revive Family Prayer in the home. Get the kids to compose a Family Album of the things they like about being in this family. There will be an indulgence for those attending. More soon.

We know how good family is. The Father would never have let Jesus waste 30 years living in one if it weren’t. We were all born sons or daughters, brothers and sisters, nobody just descended from heaven to be alone by themselves.

The Amoris Programme—let’s talk Family! Let’s be Family. (Autumn 2017).
This is a response to Pope Francis’ request. The programme aims to support families on the run up to the World Meeting of Families and to continue that journey in the years ahead.
Who is it for? It’s for you. Everyone is welcome to follow the programme online or at parish and other public events. Let’s talk Family is a 6 part programme based on Pope Francis’ exhortation. It will offer us all and opportunity to think about our vision and hopes for family and marriage and rediscover the gift that family is to the world and how we can support this.

Amoris—Let’s be Family! Is a set of practical engaging activities which draw from and build on the parish based programme and aim to celebrate and support marriage and family life. Some of these can be carried out in our own homes  others can be run by parish groups, or groups of parishes.

Children and Youth. Resources will also be available for primary and secondary school children at specific moments throughout the year including Catholic Schools week.

Amoris online  The entire Amoris programme will be supported by a dynamic website, video, social media and online presence to encourage interaction with national and international audiences: half hour TV programmes, discussions etc
Digital animations
Live events  streamed online and available to audiences throughout the world
Will let you know as soon as I know a bit more.
