Volunteer for World Meeting of Families in Dublin 2018

Posted on 25. May, 2017 in Faith, NEWS, Parish News

At least three thousand volunteers are needed to assist with the planning and organising of the ninth World Meeting of Families which Pope Francis asked Archbishop Diarmuid Martin to host in Dublin in 2018.  This six-day festival of faith will take place from 21 to 26 August next year with the theme: “The Gospel of the Family: Joy for the World”. 

As part of its pastoral preparations the organisers of the World Meeting of Families are now inviting thousands of volunteers to participate in this once-in-a-generation event.  The volunteers will be part of the operational team which will organise and run what will be the largest gathering of families in the world.

Volunteers must be resident in Ireland, over 18 years of age and respectful of the Catholic ethos of the event.  Volunteers will also assist at related preparatory events which will take place around the country.
