August 2018 – World Meeting of Families 2018

World Meeting of Families 2018 was a joyful festival of the love of God revealed in Jesus Christ, the same love that Christian families are called to witness to in the world. It consisted of an enriching main programme for adults, of keynote speakers, workshops, talks, testimonies and discussions.

There were engaging and exciting programmes for young people as well as fun activities for children. WMOF 2018 included Eucharistic Celebrations, a festival of families, exhibitions, performances, events around the city, among many other things.

Hopefully the Meeting will also foster gestures of solidarity for families in difficulties. During these five days, there was time to meet and share, pray and reflect, grow in faith and love, celebrate, as well as gather strength to continue the journey of life.

Thousands of people travelled from very distant places to participate in World Meeting of Families 2018 (Dublin, 21-26 August 2018). Many would have been unable to come, except for the generous hospitality of the Irish people.

Make hospitality your special care” (Romans 12:13)
