Archdiocese of Kuala Lumpur to launch yearlong initiatives for families

The activities will formally begin on August 21 with an inaugural Mass at the Cathedral of St John, the Evangelist

The Archdiocese of Kuala Lumpur will launch this month several activities that will promote and support family life in line with the theme of the 10th World Meeting of Families in Rome in June.

This year’s international gathering of Catholic families carried the theme “Family life: a vocation and a path to holiness.”

“Our aim (for the celebration) is to develop the theme chosen by the pope, taking into account some strong indications emerging from Amoris Laetitia,” said Father Peter Anthoney, the archdiocese’s ecclesiastical assistant for the Family Life Commission.



The priest said he expects more families to benefit from the upcoming events because of the growing “support and collaboration” of the clergy and the laity.

The activities will formally begin on August 21 with an inaugural Mass in the Cathedral of St John, the Evangelist.

Father Anthoney said the the archdiocese will use some of the guidelines and input from the sessions during the World Meeting of Families to organize events for the local Church.

Among the issues to be discussed are the encyclical Amoris Laetitia, topics raised in Rome during the international gathering, family worship of the Blessed Sacrament, family rosaries, and pilgrimages.
