Parishes around the world to offer catechesis in preparation for 2006 World Meeting of Families

.- The President of the Pontifical Council for the Family, Cardinal Alfonso Lopez Trujillo, announced last week that parishes around the world will be able to offer a special family catechesis in preparation for the IV World Meeting of Families, which will be celebrated on July 1-9, 2006 in Valencia, Spain, July 1-9.

Speaking to the Avan news agency after meeting with pastors of the Archdiocese of Valencia, the cardinal announced that the short catechesis would soon be distributed to all of the world’s bishops’ conferences.

Likewise, Cardinal Trujillo expressed his confidence that Pope Benedict XVI would attend the meeting in Valencia.  “The important effort launched by both priests and laity in Valencia will be reflected in the event and also in the months that precede it,” he added.

More information on the meeting and the catechesis program can be found at www.emf2006.org
