WORLD MEETING OF FAMILIES JUNE 22-26 The tenth World Meeting of Families (WMoF) celebrating family life will take place between June 22-26.

Held every three years in a different city across the world each time, the WMoF was originally launched in 1994 by Pope St John Paul II. That year was declared ‘International Year of the Family’ by the United Nations.

Although centred on Rome, the main focus of WMoF 2022 will be on dioceses around the world, each with their own programme of local events taking place in churches across the globe.

Here in the Archdiocese of Southwark, individual deaneries and parishes will be organising their own family-orientated events and celebrations to mark WMoF 2022. Please see the Marriage and Family Life section of this website for details of what is planned for your area.
