San José (Agenzia Fides) - In conjunction with Family Day, celebrated on 26 and 27 October in Rome on the occasion of the Year of Faith, presided by Pope Francis, the "First National Congress for life and the family" was held in San José, Costa Rica. Under the auspices of the Episcopal Conference, through the National Commission for the pastoral care of the family and the Association for Life, the meeting was held at the headquarters of the Episcopal Conference, in San Jose.
The information sent to Fides Agency reported that the conferences had the common slogan "It is time to act!"
