This is the theme of this year’s National Week for Life and the Family, which will be celebrated across Canada May 12-19, 2019.
For the seventh consecutive year, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) is offering parishes as well as Catholic organizations and associations possible resources and options for planning and organizing local activities, such as a Sunday mass dedicated to the family.
The resources have been prepared by the Catholic Organization for Life and Family (COLF) and are available online, and may be freely downloaded and reproduced.
The dates of the National Week are determined primarily by the United Nations 1993 resolution which declared 15 May the International Day of Families. In turn, the International Day is used to establish the dates for Quebec Family Week (Semaine québécoise des familles).
