On Thursday 4th May Bishop Buckley will launch the preparation programme for the parishes of our Diocese which will engage families in a variety of faith filled moments of encounter over the months leading to this international event in August 2018. At these sessions we will also welcome Fr Timothy Bartlett, the General Secretary for the World Meeting of Families in Ireland, who will speak to us about the five day event which will culminate in the proposed visit by Pope Francis for the celebration of Eucharist to mark the closing of the gathering.
There are two sessions offered:
2:30pm to 4:00pm Clonakilty Parish Centre
7:30pm to 9:00pm Blackrock Parish Centre
