The Congress Convenes In


Why organize The World Congress of Families?
In response to a militantly, global anti-family ethos prevalent in the "post modern" world, the World Congress of Families fosters an international network of pro-family organizations, scholars, and leaders that seeks to restore the natural family as the fundamental social unit and the "seed bed" of a civil society. To date, there have been three World Congresses of Families - Prague (1997), Geneva (1999) and Mexico City (2004). WCF IV is being planned for Warsaw, May 11-13, 2007.
Why Warsaw?
"Europe is almost lost; to a demographic winter and to the secularists. If Europe goes much of the world will go with it. Almost alone, Poland has maintained strong faith and strong families, though even Poland comes under severe pressure to change. Poland has saved Europe before. It is likely she will save Europe again. On family and population questions, Europe is the battleground in the early years of the 21st Century, and Poland is the pivot point. It makes abundant sense that The World Congress of Families IV meet among the brave people of Poland. Poland's central location will give pro-family groups across the Continent easy access to this Congress." ~ from the WCF IV Planning Meeting, October 23-25, 2005, Rockford, Illinois.
Why 11 - 13 May, 2007?
90th anniversary of the Fatima apparitions
26th anniversary of the attempt of assassination of the Pope John Paul II
26th anniversary of establishing The Pontifical Cancel for the Family
