World Meeting of Families 2018
The Gospel of the Family: Joy for the World! (11 days / 9 nights)
The World Meeting of Families is an historic moment of grace and a font of spiritual formation. Our faith journey through spiritually rich Ireland will give us opportunity to come closer to God and gratefully consider the sacrifices and dedication of those who came before. As we visit the sites of the early Christian Church in Ireland, we will renew our commitment to the roots of our Catholic faith. The Masses and meditations we celebrate along the way will draw us together as a community and will remind us of our blessings and the call to stewardship as followers of Jesus Christ.
