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.
