World Meeting of Families catechesis to be available online
To help parishes, groups, individuals and families better prepare for the World Meeting of Families, Vatican organisers are releasing a multimedia series of catechetical materials in five languages online.
The Dicastery for Laity, the Family and Life announced that starting on Friday 2nd February, the feast of the Presentation of the Lord, it would launch a digital series of seven catecheses that include musical interludes starring famed Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli. There would also be monthly video shorts meant for groups and parishes.
All the materials will be available for free on the dicastery’s site www.laityfamilylife.va and its YouTube channel, PcFamiglia.
Cardinal Kevin J. Farrell, prefect of the dicastery, told reporters that the series was meant to provide simple and inspiring ways to reflect, pray and prepare over the next seven months until the start of the world meeting in Dublin from 21st to 26th August. The theme of the gathering is ‘The Gospel of the Family: Joy for the World’.
