The evening is part of our diocesan preparations for the World Meeting of Families which is scheduled to take place in Dublin next year. The evening of celebration, entitled “The Joy of Love” will include an opportunity for you, and your parish choir and musicians, to learn the official hymn for the World Meeting of Families, A Joy for all the Earth. The music and score of the hymn can be downloaded at: (http://www.worldmeeting2018.ie/hymn/).
On the night, the Archbishop will be launching the official hymn for the WMOF2018 also will also be introducing the Icon of the Holy Family.
