Preparatory Events

The World Meeting of Families is more than a once-off event. Rather, it is a process by which we can celebrate and explore the riches of the Church’s “Gospel of the Family”. All around Ireland and the world people are already exploring these riches as a way to prepare for WMOF2018 locally. 

We invite you to join in preparatory events that will be taking place around Ireland and the world. Some will be organised by us, some by the different dioceses, parishes, movements and individuals. 

Please email us if you are organising any preparatory event for WMOF2018 that you would like other people to know about and join in.

Subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on social media to receive more information as this becomes available. Thank you.
