Focus on family

December 2014


Family and community

The Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops convened by Pope Francis on marriage and family during October begins a year of deep reflection for the Church.

This reflection will continue in the lead-up to part two of the Assembly in October 2015.

Advent and the Christmas celebration of the Holy Family bring special attention to the significance of our families and communities.

Wel-Com offers invited contributions with a variety of viewpoints and encounters about what family means in Aotearoa New Zealand today.
