World Meeting of Families

The ninth World Meeting of Families  will be Aug. 21-26 in Dublin Ireland. This is the first World Meeting of Families since the promulgation of Pope Francis' Apostolic Exhortation on Marriage, The Joy of Love (Amoris Laetitia). To learn more about this historic event visit their website.

Our diocese will be sending a pilgrimage group to tour Ireland prior to the World Meeting of Families. The group will join Pope Francis and hundreds of thousands of pilgrims for the closing Mass and ceremony.
