World Meeting of Families celebrates creation

August 9, 2018

This August, hundreds of thousands of people from around the world will gather in Dublin for the World Meeting of Families. In this special time of focus on familial love, pilgrims will reflect on how they care for the Earth, our common home.

Pilgrims are invited to pray for and protect creation. Spaces to celebrate creation will include a photo exhibition, garden, and more and events will include breakfasts, panel discussions, and more.

A video shown before the papal mass will highlight Pope Francis’ tender heart for creation and all who share it.

This video is being shared with the support of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network, which helps Catholics around the world connect with Pope Francis’ monthly prayer intentions.
