2014-09-09

A total of 14 married couples will participate in the Vatican's Synod on the Family in the month of October. The theme focuses on how to evangelize to the family, amid all the modern day challenges it faces. One of the couples is from Iraq. They will share what it's like to be a Christian in a Muslim country. 

From Chile, Luis Jensen and Pilar Acuña will also be attending. They actually worked with then Cardinal Bergoglio back in 2007 during the Aparecida Synod where Latin American Bishops discussed social issues, like the family. 

From the U.S, Jeffrey and Alice Heinzen will be speaking about natural family planning and fertility. 


The list also includes couples from Lebanon, Congo, Rwanda, the Philippines, France, Germany and Brazil. The couples will share their personal experiences on married life with roughly 200 participants, which will include presidents of episcopal conferences, discasteries and heads of religious orders. 

 
Out of the 14 couples, 13 of them will audit the conference. The other couple falls under the expert category. 

In addition, Pope Francis has invited 12 women to participate in the conference. Among them is María Lacalle Noriega from Spain, who serves as the director of the Center for Family Studies in the Francisco de Vitoria University. 


The Synod will take place from October 5th to the 19th.
