The year 2019 was declared by the Bishops of Tanzania Episcopal Conference (TEC) to be the year of the ÔÇ£Year of the FamilyÔÇØ in Tanzania.  ThatÔÇÖs why even the Lenten Message of this year brought the idea of the family as the basic cell of the society, school of faith, morals and evangelization.


The aim of these conferences to be held in July, September and November 2019, is to explore the connection between the family apostolate and the anthropological biblical and theological perspective.


The papers to be presented are expected to tackle several issues concerning the families, from a particular perspective of a given discipline.
