Pope Francis has designed the Year of Amoris Laetitia Family, a time to celebrate the five-year anniversary of the landmark Synod on the Family and ensuing apostolic exhortation, “Amoris Laetitia” (The Joy of Love).
In the Diocese of San Diego, we also commemorate the five-year anniversary of our own Synod on the Family and the creation of the Diocesan Office for Family Life & Spirituality.
Please join Auxiliary Bishop Ramón Bejarano and the diocese for a Mass at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish to celebrate the five-year anniversary of “The Joy of Love” and the movement it inspired to welcome and serve today’s families. The event will include a Family Rosary at 10 AM, a Family Resource Fair, and a variety of fun family activities! In addition to “Celebrating the Joy of Love”, this gathering of families will also be a celebration of returning to Mass and being able to see the “Family of Families” once again, united around the altar of the Lord.
