Held every three years and sponsored by the Holy See’s Pontifical Council for the Family, the World Meeting of Families is the world’s largest Catholic gathering of families.  Each World Meeting of Families has a theme that energizes and enlivens the event while adding great depth of meaning to our understanding of families.  The theme of the 2015 World Meeting of Families is “Love is Our Mission: The Family Fully Alive,” emphasizing the impact of the love and life of families on our society. 

 

The 2015 World Meeting of Families will be hosted in Philadelphia, PA, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center from Tuesday Sept. 22nd through Friday Sept. 25th, with the Pope scheduled to visit over the weekend (Sat. Sept. 26th and Sun. Sept. 27th).   The congress will feature speakers from around the world, including Fr. Robert Barron, Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers, Professor Helen Alvare, and Dr. Scott Hahn.
