The diocese of Rome holds its first Forum of the Catholic and Pontifical Universities of Rome



The Catholic and Pontifical Universities of the diocese of Rome, Pope's diocese, have for the first time organised a forum to discuss matters concerning the spreading of the Gospel within the jurisdiction of the diocese of Rome. Convened under the theme “Communicating faith in Rome”, the meeting started on 16 November at the Lateran Pontifical University.
The congress has been organised by the Department for University Pastoral Care of the Vicariate of Rome as part of the Year of Faith initiatives. Director of this department, Auxiliary Bishop Lorenzo Leuzzi, explained that the aim of the meeting is to confirm the special nature of the cultural contribution of the Catholic and Pontifical Universities to the Roman university system.
It also aims to present to the diocese of Rome the universities’ initiatives in relation to the formation and encouraging the communication of faith. Bishop Leuzzi said that the Forum also constitutes the conclusion of the path of collaboration between the Catholic and Pontifical universities, which began with the Synod, and opens a new phase of dialogue between the Church and the universities of the city of Rome.
