World Meeting of Families

On Behalf of the National Finance Committee I write to thank you and the people of your parish, very sincerely, for your generous response to last year’s first national collection for the World Meeting of Families 2018. Almost €800,000 has been contributed by parishioners from around the island. A fantastic achievement. Pope Francis personally chose Dublin, to be the host diocese for the World Meeting of Families from 22nd -26th August 2018. Planning for this great national and international celebration of faith is well under-way. A dedicated office and support team has been established and later this year a nationwide programme of talking about the family will begin with the 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 characterise the ups and downs of day-to-day family life. As you know hosting this national and international event requires an enormous amount of planning and funding. In this regard the second national collection will be held on the weekend of 1st and 2nd of April 2017.
