Synods of Bishops on the Family

In October 2013, Pope Francis initiated a two-year churchwide consultation on the family, including an Extraordinary Synod of Bishops, which met at the Vatican in October 2014 and focused on "The Pastoral Challanges of the Family in the Context of Evangelization", as well as an ordinary Synod of Bishops, from October 4-25, 2015 focusing on the theme of "The Vocation and Mission of the Family in the Church and Contemporary World."


The Pope's announcement on 8 October 2013 gave the impetus to a lot of initiatives.

INTAMS as well seized this opportunity in various ways. In this section you will find a list of activities, publications, and events INTAMS organized in the margin of the Synods in 2014 and 2015, during the Jubilee of Mercy 2016, and during the Amoris laetitia Family Year 2021-2022.
