The Holy Father will not have to travel too far for the tenth World Meeting of Families (WMOF) in 2021 as it will be held in Rome, Italy, the fifth anniversary of Amoris Laetitia.
The eagerly awaited announcement was made by Cardinal Kevin Farrell, Prefect of the Dicastery of Laity, Family and Life, at the end of last Sunday’s Papal Mass at Phoenix Park, Dublin, Europe’s largest walled park. The Irish-American prelate took the opportunity to thank the Church in Ireland and its civil authorities for their welcome, “benevolence and cooperation” during the ninth WMOF. The Meeting’s Pastoral Congress was held August 22–24 at the Royal Dublin Society, and an entertaining Festival of Families on August 25 at Croke Park.
