The Call, the Journey
and the Mission

An Invitation from the Bishops of England and Wales to reflect on the Gift of Marriage and Family Life.

In October 2014, bishops and other delegates from around the world met with Pope Francis in Rome for a special gathering called a Synod. The theme for discussion was the Pastoral Challenges to the Family in the Context of Evangelisation. A further Synod will take place in October 2015 and the focus then will be on the theme of The Vocation and Mission of the Family in the Church and in the Contemporary World. In this time between these two Synods, our Holy Father has asked us to spend time reflecting on these themes with "true spiritual discernment."
