DIOCESAN COLLECTION next weekend for: World Meeting of Families 2018


Kerry diocese helping finance World Meeting of Families 2018

The final collection to help finance the World Meeting of Families will be taken up at all Masses next weekend and I thank you for your generous contribution to the previous collections.

I ask you to consider being especially generous to this collection. With the visit of Pope Francis and the need to plan to accommodate over half a million at the final Mass (hopefully huge numbers from our diocese will be present), costs are enormous. A figure of twenty million Euro is being mentioned. It is vital that each diocese makes a significant contribution. This collection deserves a special effort on all our parts. In hosting WMF 2018 Ireland is doing a great service for the whole Church and the world, reminding us all in the words of Pope Saint John Paul:

The future of humanity passes by way of marriage and the family”.

Bishop Ray
