“Family Love: A vocation and a path to Holiness”
The World Meeting of Families
The 10th World Meeting of Families (WMOF)—organised by Vatican Dicastery for the Laity, Family and Life along with the Diocese of Rome—is intended to highlight family love as a vocation and as a way of holiness, to understand and share the profound and salvific meaning of family relationships in daily life.
After being postponed for a year due to the pandemic, Pope Francis has asked dioceses around the world to make it possible for every family to participate in the WMOF. While Rome will be the main venue for the event on 22–26 June 2022, each diocese around the world will promote local events for its own families and communities based on the theme: “Family love: a vocation and a path to holiness.”
Watch the Pope's message for the 10th World Meeting of Families below.
The WMOF is a great opportunity for Catholics on the local level to renew their commitment to family ministry in solidarity with diocesan communities from around the world and the Diocese of Rome. There will be a number of local events, reflections and moments of prayer to coincide with the gathering in Rome.
