His Beatitude Sviatoslav, UGCC Head, is paticipating in Rome in the Annual Plenary Meeting of the Association of Catholic Bishops' Conferences in Europe (CCEE).

We note that on October 2-4, 2014, the heads of the Catholic eoiscopates in Europe, members of CCEE, will discuss the topic “The Family and the Future of Europe”.  This topic is being discussed because in several days the next Synod of the Catholic Church focusing on the family begins. 

The fathers at the Plenary Session will discuss the role which current society poses for the institution of the family, about the crisis and the challenges which this society places before them.  However, the main issue is how the Church should react to the problems which the current Christian family is facing and what systematic steps  should the Church take in order to overcome them.  Within the context of this year's Plenary Session, on October 3rd, the members of CCEE met for the first time with His Holiness Pope Francis, at which the successor of Peter greeted all the participants and urged them to courageously preach Christ because it is only He who can resolve the problems that face a person in the current world.

The Plenary Session will end on October 4th.
