Pope Francis has personally chosen Dublin to be the host diocese for the World Meeting of Families from 21st to the 26th of August 2018. Planning for this great national and international celebration of faith is well underway. Hosting this important event requires an enormous amount of planning and funding. In this regard a second national collection will be held on the weekend of 1st and 2nd of April 2017. Your support for this collection would be greatly appreciated.
