‘World Meeting of Families’:

Pope Francis has decided that the World Meeting of Families will be held in Dublin on 22nd. to 26th. August 2018, with the theme “The Gospel of the Family: Joy for the World”.

The announcement of the date and theme for the 9th World Meeting of Families (WMF) was made at a press conference in the Vatican on Tuesday, attended by Archbishop Diarmuid Martin, Archbishop of Dublin, and the head of the Pontifical Council for the Family, Archbishop Vincenzo Pagila. The Archdiocese of Dublin is the host Diocese for this event which takes place once every three years in different parts of the world. It is too early to know if Pope Francis will attend the WMOF.  His programme is normally announced just a few months prior to any event.  The Pope has expressed his desire to attend, and such a visit of the Pope would bring great joy to Irish Catholics and others. But the final decision will depend on many factors.

To support the hosting of the event the Irish Bishops have decided to hold three national church collections during 2016, 2017, and 2018. The first will be next week-end 4th./5th. June 2016.

Ossory Diocesan Pastoral Plan:

Bishop Seamus Freeman has appointed Ms. Gemma Mulligan, Tullaroan, Co. Kilkenny, to the post of Co-ordinator for the Ossory Diocesan Pastoral Plan. The Bishop says “this is a significant appointment in our diocese, as we embark on the implementation of our Diocesan Pastoral Plan, a Plan brought about by the faithful and for the faithful in our Diocese”.
