In the face of a foster parent shortage in the UK, the Catholic Church in England and Wales will launch a campaign to encourage adoption and foster care.
The campaign will launch Nov. 13 at the annual gathering of the nation's diocesan marriage and family life coordinators.
The campaign is a partnership between the Marriage and Family Life Coordinators and Home for Good, an adoption charity that works with faith-based groups in the UK.
The organizers of the Nov. 13 conference said the campaign will promote adoption among parishes and encourage parishioners to become foster parents.
