Dear Friend of the Family,

An event crucial to the survival of the family is happening in Warsaw, Poland, on May 11-13, 2007.

On those days, 3,000 leaders, scholars and activists will assemble for World Congress of Families IV – the largest international pro-family conference of its kind.

Congresses are held approximately every 3 years. There have been three so far – Prague (1997), Geneva (1999) and Mexico City (2004). Warsaw promises to be our most exciting -- and important Congress -- to date.

Our theme is Beyond Demographic Winter: The Natural Family and the Springtime of Nations.   In the words of The World Congress of Families IV International Planning Committee Report:

Europe is almost lost; to demographic winter and to the secularists.  If Europe goes, much of the world will go with it.  Almost alone, Poland has maintained strong faith and strong families, though even Poland comes under severe pressure to change.  Poland has saved Europe before.  It is likely she will save Europe again.  On family and population questions, Europe is the battleground in the early years of the 21st Century, and Poland is the pivot point.  We believe that it makes abundant sense that The World Congress of Families IV meet among the brave people of Poland.

And you can be part of this! I would like to extend to you a personal invitation to attend World Congress of Families IV, in Warsaw, this coming May 11-13.  A trip to Warsaw is more affordable than you might think. Round-trip airfare and four nights at the luxury Polonia Palace Hotel or Warsaw Marriott is available from most points in the U.S. for less than $1,300.

If you’ve never been to a Congress, it’s hard to explain the air of excitement. 

We’re expecting pro-family activists from over 65 countries. Besides an exceptional program of speakers, workshops and special events, there’s the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with pro-family leaders from Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa.
