2021 Rome: Theme for the World Meeting of Families Announced

The Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life releases the theme for the 2021 World Meeting of Families, which will be held in Rome.

Family love: a vocation and a path to holiness is the theme chosen by Pope Francis for the next World Meeting of Families, due to take place in Rome from 23rd to 27th June 2021.

A statement released by the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life explains that, as the event will be taking place on the fifth anniversary of the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia and three years after the promulgation of Gaudete et Exsultate, 'the aim is to emphasise family love as a vocation and a way to holiness, and to understand and share the profound and redeeming significance of family relationships in daily life.'
