WMOF preparations

National Collection weekend of 01 – 02 April 2017

Dublin has been chosen by Pope Francis to host the next World Meeting of Families in August 2018. Started by Saint John Paul II, and held every three years, this major world event celebrates family as the cornerstone of our lives, and the fundamental building block of society and the Church.

Families and others from all over the world will gather in Dublin from 21-26 August 2018 to celebrate their lives together, to share their experiences from different parts of the world, to reflect on the different challenges they face and to grow together in faith.

Bishop Michael describes his hopes for the preparation of the World Meeting of Families in a video interview below:
