World Meeting of Families In preparation for the World Meeting of Families, there is a vast array of resources for all ages with videos, animations, cartoons, and activities for our young people. There is also the opportunity of the ‘Amoris’ family reflection which is a nice way to prepare for the event.
We also ask you keep the gathering in your prayers and in particular to pray for Pope Francis, who visits us next weekend.
