Première journée (mardi 21 août 2018)

Cérémonie d’ouverture

Thème – La joie de l’amour dans les familles est aussi la joie de l’Église

Une Cérémonie d’ouverture de la Rencontre Mondiale des Familles 2018 aura lieu simultanément dans tous les 26 diocèses d'Irlande dans la soirée du mardi 21 août (heure à confirmer), mais la cérémonie principale se déroulera à Dublin. 

The Opening Liturgy will be a full celebration of Evening Prayer. Entitled ‘Le chéile le Críost’ (together with Christ), it will gather the Church as the family of families, and set us on the path of celebration for the entire World Meeting of Families that will culminate with the closing Papal Mass on Sunday 26th August. It will take place in every diocese in the country, typically in the Cathedral Church, and we hope adapted forms of the prayer will be celebrated in every parish church, chapel of ease and in family homes.

We will begin remembering that we walk in the footsteps of the saints and those who have handed on the faith to us. We welcome Christ our unfailing light, we sing and pray hymns, psalms and canticles, burn incense and pray for the entire human family before our God and Father. 

This prayer is completely ecumenical in nature and already there has been a suggestion that all Christian Churches might like to join us in ringing out church bells as the Evening Prayer begins all over the island.

Many of our international delegates and speakers will have the opportunity to join local communities across Ireland for this event.
