Diocesan Launch of WMOF 2018

The Killala Diocesan Launch for the World Meeting of Families 2018 will be held on Sunday September 3rd at 1.30pm at the Newman Institute, Ballina.
All are welcome to this very important event at which Bishop John Fleming will formally mark the beginning of our preparations for the WMOF in August 2018.

The Diocesan WMOF Committee has been working diligently over the past number of months in preparation for Sunday’s event and a number of activities are planned which will engage all ages.
A number of resources have already been circulated to all parishes in the diocese and more will follow at different points throughout the coming year.
Please try to come along and enjoy our official WMOF launch.

A specially commissioned WMOF2018 icon of the Holy Family was unveiled and anointed on 21August 2017, during the launch of the one-year programme of preparation at the National Novena in Knock, Ireland.

The icon was written by the Redemptoristine Contemplative Community in Drumcondra as part of their ongoing prayer for families. The icon is meant to encourage both reflection and prayer as part of the journey of preparations to World Meeting of Families 2018.

Following the official unveiling at the National Novena in Knock, the icon will be available to travel to each diocese in Ireland.
