The CLC World Executive Council in partnership with Comillas Pontifical University of Madrid, Spain, arranged the International Formation Encounter on Family 2017 on 16-21 July 2017 in El Escorial (Madrid). The meeting was inspired on the “Amoris Laetitiae” bearing the theme of: “See how they love one another.” A lay Ignatian look at Family.

The Secretary of the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life, Fr Alexandre Awi Mello, attended the meeting so as lay people from 30 countries: Korea, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Philippiness, Botswana, Congo, Kenya, Ivory Coast, Canada, USA, Chile, Uruguay, Colombia, Ecuador, Poland, Germany, England and France

The objectives of the meeting were:

• Share and deepen the universal experiences of family as a lay community, and strengthen the commitment of service to families as an Ignatian Apostolic Body.

• Broaden individual connections / networks on family ministries and knowledge.

• Identify and articulate immediate steps that can help the mission in the family frontier in national communities.

• Strengthen CLC as an Apostolic Body by forming a discernment group on family that can continue the conversations after IFE and move them into long-term action.

In Lebanon 2013, the CLC World Assembly adopted “Family” as one of our four frontiers. In Spain CLC has implemented the tool “The Family Clock” to help families' reality from faith, in churches and communities all over the country.
