On Thursday afternoon, 22 October, at the beginning of the general congregation of the Synod of Bishops, the Holy Father made the following announcement: “I have decided to establish a new dicastery responsible for laity, family and life, which will replace the Pontifical Council for the Laity and the Pontifical Council for the Family. The Pontifical Academy for Life will be joined to the new dicastery.
