CFM in Rome-January 2015
Lauri and John Przybysz, CFM-USA board members, participated in an international conference of lay organizations and movements for the Pontifical Council for the Family, January 22-24, 2015 in Rome. They represented the Christian Family Movements in USA and Canada, which have more than 8,000 Hispanic and English families.
