THE WORLD MEETING OF FAMILIES

The World Meeting of the Families takes place in Dublin next August. It consists of a three day event at the RDS in Ballsbridge (August 22, 23, 24) a vigil-type Festival of Families in Croke Park on the evening of Saturday, August 25 and a concluding Mass in the Phoenix Park in the early afternoon of Sunday, August 25.

There is a cost for attendance at the RDS days, but no cost for attendance at the Croke Park and Phoenix Park events, at which Pope Francis will preside. However, for attendance at any of these events, it will be necessary to register online at www.worldmeeting2018.ie.

For the Croke Park event, where space is limited, priority will be given to people who have booked to
participate in the World Meeting in the RDS.
