JOHN PAUL II INSTITUTE HOLDS SEMINAR IN ROME

Professors' Summit Focuses on Family

          VATICAN CITY, AUG 23 (ZENIT).- From August 22-27, some 100 University professors are meeting in the Pontifical Lateran University in Rome, to study God's plan on marriage and the family.

          The meeting was organized by the John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and the Family. It is the last phase of a study that began a year and a half ago in the Lateran University, as well as in other branches of the Institute in the United States, Mexico, Spain, and in Centers in West Africa, Brazil, India and Australia.

          The John Paul II Pontifical Institute for Studies on Marriage and the Family was founded by the present Pope in 1981, to offer the Church the contribution resulting from theological and pastoral reflection on marriage and the family, necessary in the exercise of her evangelizing mission. In the light of faith, and with the help of human sciences, the Institute attempts to seriously address the truth of matrimony and the family, as well as to prepare priests, religious and laymen in the exercise of their apostolate.

          The Institute' s main headquarters were opened in the Lateran University in 1992 with subsequent branches in Washington, D.C., Mexico City and Guadalajara, Mexico, and Valencia, Spain. ZE99082306
