We – the European Laity Forum – are a platform of the national committees of the Catholic laity for meeting and sharing information, experiences and ideas. For us the common responsibility is to participate in the Christian mission as lay people in society and in the Church.

Our lay vocation: Being merciful to each other!
June 23th - 26th, 2016
