Popes Visit.  

Pope visit

Preparations for The World Meeting of Families 2018.   As you know there will be a number of different elements of the WMOF2018 which


(i) A National Opening in each Diocese; 21st August at 7:30 p.m. Galway Cathedral

(ii) A Pastoral Congress from 22-24 August (R.D.S. Dublin);

(iii) the Festival of Families on 25 August – (Croke Park);

(iv) the Closing Mass on Sunday 26 August in Phoenix Park.

“The WMOF2018 has also rolled out the ‘Amoris: Let’s Talk Family! Let’s be Family’ programme which is a conversation about the family with an emphasis on Pope    Francis’ teaching and reflections. The World Meeting of Families promises to be an occasion that will reflect on the faith experience of families from many parts of the world as well as on the challenges and celebrations which characterize the ups and downs of day-to-day family life”. Bishop Brendan Kelly.

Few things:

⇒   The full itinerary of the Popes visit to Ireland is announced.

⇒   It looks like people attending the Mass will need to be fit enough to walk 5kms.
