Family and Life Commission

First meeting of the CCEE Commission Family and Life

Dublin, Ireland

The first meeting of the CCEE Commission Family and life took place on the 23rd August in Dublin, the Irish capital which gathers the World Family Meeting (21-26 August).

The new Commission was set up by the 2017 CCEE Plenary Assembly and is aimed to promote the Gospel of the Family.

The Commission’s work, led by the President of the Commission, the Archbishop of St. Andrew and Edinburgh, H.E. Mgr Leo Cushley, began with a short presentation of the bishops delegated for the family pastoral care of 15 Bishops’ Conferences in Europe. The exchange will allow the formulation of some guidelines for the years ahead, guidelines that will be presented to the presidency and the next Plenary Assembly of the CCEE, in agenda in Poznań (Poland) from 13 to 16 September 2018.
