The Vatican’s Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life has a new way to interact with the world: a new website launched this week.
Online at www.laityfamilylife.va, the new site offers news about the Dicastery’s activities, as well as social updates and videos.
Explaining its mission, the Dicastery says, “The new website, in addition to telling about the Dicastery’s activities, wants to become a familiar place for lay people and families, where everyone will feel at ease and have a chance to be heard.”
The portal also presents the Dicastery’s new logo, which represents “a hug that welcomes all the laity and all the families of the world.”
Designed by Anna Formaggio, the logo represents the colonnade around St. Peter’s Square made up of lay people who embrace a group of families. In the logo, this is represented by a flower sprouting from the extensions of the St. Peter columns.
