In 2017, as part of its response to the Apostolic Exhortation, Amoris Laetitia, the Dicastery of Laity, Family and Life invited experts from 12 countries around the world for a two-day international seminar to discuss the need to provide assistance to parents in the sexual affective formation of their children.
As a result of this meeting, it was decided to launch the goodlove Foundation, a global initiative that will help parents in the sexual-affective formation of their children by providing information and networking on the best possible resources and programs.
To advocate sexual-affective educational programs to parents so they can help their children and young people to discover their vocation to love.
To promote worldwide sexual-affective resources aligned with and faithful to the Catholic Church Magisterium.
To facilitate economic sustainability for the goodlove Foundation, community, and other future initiatives of the Foundation.
The goodlove Foundation Board is composed of associated individuals from around the world.
