Laity, Family And Life: New Logo And New Website

The Dicastery for the Laity, the Family and Life, which began to function on September 1, 2016, inaugurated its new logo and new Internet site:

The logo represents the “€œhug”€ of the Church for “€œall the laity and all the families of the world.”€ On the image, lay people are supporting the Bernini colonnade, which embraces a group of families in a hug.

Symbolizing “€œwomen, men, children, young people, elderly people, and families,”€ the faithful constitute the Church and at the same time enjoy her maternal protection,”€ explained the Dicastery.

From the colonnade and the families within it, life is born. A flower, sprouting from the extensions of St. Peter”€™s columns, represents this in the logo. 

In addition to describing the Dicasery”€™s activities, the new Website intends to offer all a “€œchance to be heard.”€ Therefore, ample space is given to the social networks. The site is available in French, English, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese.
