The World Meeting of Families Third National Collection is scheduled to take place in parishes on the weekend of 24-25 February 2018.

Dublin, Ireland has the great joy of hosting the 9th World Meeting of Families that will take place in just under seven month’s time from the 21 – 26 August 2018.  The sense of excitement, expectation and anticipation is building by the day as we prepare to welcome families from across Ireland and across the world to our family gathering.

Pope Francis has asked us to prepare for the 9th World Meeting of Families by reflecting on ‘Amoris Laetitia (The Joy of Love)’, his apostolic exhortation released in 2016.  Pope Francis believes that the family is good news for today’s world.  The Amoris: Let’s Talk Family! Let’s Be Family!Programme is a response to this request from Pope Francis.

We are inviting families in our parish to join us on our journey of preparation for the World Meeting of Families and to be part of the events in Dublin from 21 – 26 August 2018.  Please support us by volunteering, registering to attend and donating at our parish collection.
