Families and Pope Francis
As the Bishop Delegate to the Australian Catholic Marriage and Family Council (ACMFC) I have pleasure in attaching the leaflet “Families & Pope Francis” which has been prepared by the ACMFC.
It draws attention to two major family events of great significance in the life of the Universal Church and in which Pope Francis is participating:
- VIII World Meeting of Families, Philadelphia, 22-27 Sep 2015, and
- XIV Ordinary Synod of Bishops, Rome 4-25 Oct 2015
The leaflet is in two formats, colour and black and white, and is easily reproducible. It contains a number of quotes on family life from Pope Francis.
Below are some bulletin clips that you may wish to use to remind parishioners to pray for these two important meetings.
I would be grateful for your support in this. The ACMFC will be emailing the leaflet directly to parishes and schools in the diocese.
Also attached is the Prayer for the Synod.
Yours sincerely in Christ,
Most Rev. Michael Kennedy D.D.
Bishop of Armidale
