2015 World Meeting of Families
The first World Meeting of Families was initiated by Saint Pope John Paul II in 1994 to help strengthen the sacred bonds of the family unit across the globe. Every three years since then, families from all over the world are invited by the Holy Father to attend this global gathering. Families share thoughts, dialogue and prayers, working together to grow as individuals and family units. This week Pope Francis formally announced his intention to attend the World Meeting of Families scheduled to be held September 22-27, 2015 in Philadelphia, USA. Further details about the conference and registration information can be found on the 2015 World Meeting of Families website at www.worldmeeting2015.org.
