World Meeting of Families

21st-26th August 2018


The theme for each World Meeting of Families is chosen by

the Pope.  In choosing The Gospel of the Family:  Joy for the World, as the theme for the ninth World Meeting of Families in Dublin, Pope Francis invites us to reflect on a theme that was central to the Synodal process that led to his post-Synodal

Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia : On Love in the Family.
