Vatican City, 15 November 2013 (VIS) – The Catholic and Pontifical Universities of the Pope's diocese are for the first time organising a forum for discussing the theme “Communicating faith in Rome”, which is scheduled to take place on 16 November in 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.

Auxiliary Bishop Lorenzo Leuzzi, director of this department, explained that the aim of this meeting is on the one hand to confirm the special nature of the cultural contribution of the Catholic and Pontifical Universities to the Roman university system and, on the other, to present to the diocese of Rome their initiatives in relation to formation and encouraging the communication of faith. “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”, added Bishop Leuzzi.
