A specially commissioned WMOF2018 icon of the Holy Family will be unveiled and anointed on the 21st August 2017, during the launch of the one-year programme of preparation at the National Novena in Knock, Ireland.
The icon is being written by the Redemptoristine Contemplative Community in Drumcondra as part of their ongoing prayer for families. The icon is meant to encourage both reflection and prayer as part of the journey of preparations to World Meeting of Families 2018.
Following the official unveiling at the National Novena in Knock, the icon will be available to travel to each Diocese in Ireland.
We will be providing further details of the icon and its journey around Ireland in the coming months.
