What is this initiative?

Next August the World Meeting of Families takes place in Dublin. With this in mind, the Society of Missionary Children (the Pope’s official children’s charity for overseas mission) with the support of the World Meeting of Families is creating a “Family Album” to bring to the World Meeting of Families!

This will be a digital collection of drawings, or other artwork from children, adolescents, and their families, providing everyone with the opportunity to illustrate what family means to them. We would invite you to participate as creatively as possible in the Society’s “Family Album.”

Pope Francis says that through beauty, artists make the world better! He also says that living together is an art, a patient, beautiful, fascinating journey so, what better way for families to express the art of living together as family than through art!
