The World Meeting of Families concludes with a Solemn Eucharistic Celebration that will gather individuals and families from all around the world in thanksgiving and communion. The Mass will mark the conclusion of the World Meeting of Families 2018 in Dublin and the next diocese to host the event in conjunction with the Dicastery for the Laity, Family and Life will be announced. 

Subject to confirmation, the main celebrant for the Final Mass will be Pope Francis should he be able to attend WMOF2018. The Holy Father has said that it is his intention to come to Ireland for WMOF2018, but this is still to be confirmed by the Holy See. 

The venue for the Final Mass will be announced subject to final confirmation of Pope Francis’ attendance. 

Attendance to this event will be free and ticketed. Though there will be no charge for the tickets, every person in attendance will require a ticket to access the venue.
