Viseu, Portugal -- Family challenges

For the past four years, the “Moinho Club” has organized a Family Conference in Viseu, held in university auditoriums. Its purpose is to confront the principal challenges faced by the family today (raising adolescents, fidelity in marriage, proper use of sexuality, etc.) from a Christian perspective. Each conference has included an invited panel, usually made up of specialists known throughout the country for their contributions in non-governmental organizations, in public life, or in the communications media. Each year, at the end of the conference, the participants say they have found their convictions strengthened and their eagerness stirred up to undertake initiatives of family formation with the assistance of other couples.
