Vatican announces launch of Catholic ‘global compact’ on the family


The Vatican is launching a research project on the family to be carried out by Catholic universities around the world.

The results of the project, called the Catholic Global Compact on the Family, will be presented at an event held before the World Meeting of Families in Rome in June 2022.

The global compact was launched to create “a shared program of actions for promoting the family throughout the world in light of the social doctrine of the Church,” an Aug. 6 press release said.

The Dicastery for the Laity, Family, and Life and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences are organizing the Catholic Global Compact on the Family with cooperation from the International Center of Family Studies in Milan, Italy.
