President of the Pontifical Council for the Family
"The Church must find a way to touch the hearts of everyone, because there are a series of different problems.” 

Even though not everyone will directly take part in the synod, it's an important way to identify and share the problems families face in different parts of the world.  This married couple from Paraguay, talked about their mission.

Project Hope (Paraguay)
"Project Hope is just that. It's a program to give hope to all families, especially divorced couples who re-marry, so that they can feel welcomed in the Church, because sometimes they feel rejected. 

 "It's a place where they can feel at home. We have a presence throughout the country and we're supported by the Episcopal Conference and we're trying to organize it in all dioceses.” 

The three day meeting will discuss a series of challenges the family faces, from single parents homes to gay children and divorce.
