The Opening Ceremony for World Meeting of Families 2018 will take place in Newry Cathedral on Tuesday 21st August at 7.00pm
THEME – THE JOY OF LOVE IN FAMILIES IS ALSO THE JOY OF THE CHURCH.
The Opening Ceremony for World Meeting of Families 2018 will take place simultaneously across all 26 Dioceses of Ireland on the evening of Tuesday 21 August, with the lead ceremony taking place in Dublin.
The Opening Liturgy will be a celebration of Mass and 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.
We will be remembering that we walk in the footsteps of the saints and those who have handed on the faith to us.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME
