July 24, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Voice of the Family invites young Catholic adults to take part in its second annual youth programme in Rome on Sept 27-Oct 3, 2019. Only ONE week until the application deadline, apply TODAY!

Widespread and profound confusion on matters of faith and morals, even within the Church, means that the formation of a new generation of Catholic leaders is now vital to the future of the pro-life movement. Through the international youth programme, Voice of the Family seeks to identify prospective leaders and offer them the formation and fellowship that would help them to defend the unchangeable teachings of the Catholic Church in years to come. The young Catholics adults, who will take part of the programme, therefore, receive a specific invitation to give their lives (in whatever vocation they choose) to work full-time for the apostolate of restoring the Church to Christ through His Holy Mother.
