Join us at the 2018 World Meeting of Families in Dublin, Ireland

Ireland
- Long known as the "Isle of Saints and Scholars", Ireland was the epicenter of Christian learning while the rest of Europe was in the Dark Ages. As the home of Saints Patrick, Bridget, Columba, and many more, Ireland also provides many faith-based attractions- from the Book of Kells, (an elaborately scripted 9th-century version of the Four Gospels), to the Knock Shrine (a leading Marian pilgrimage site), historic abbeys, cathedrals, churches, and high crosses.

Pope Francis has announced that the 9th Annual World Meeting of Families will be held in Dublin from August 22 – 26, 2018. This will also mark the First Papal Visit to Ireland in 39 years – (St. John Paul II, in September 29, 1979.)

A World Meeting of Families is an international gathering of people which aims to:
♣ stress the role of family in society
♣ applying the fruits of the Synodal process
♣ celebrate the family

The wider program includes many wonderful events taking place at the World Meeting, but also throughout Dublin. That includes liturgical and cultural events, testimonies, and workshops during the week – as well as Special Masses and Events in the evening!

The Theme for the World Meeting of Families is "The Gospel of family, Joy to the World!"


The hope is that the theme will contribute to emphasize the family’s role as a stabilizing force in society. “The family is not just the object of the attention of the Church, but a “vital role” as real protagonists of renewal, and of the transition of faith to the coming generations”- Archbishop Diarmuid Martin - Dublin
