Dublin, Ireland, has been chosen by Pope Francis to host the next World Meeting of Families, August 22-26, 2018. Started by Saint John Paul II, and held every three years, this major world event celebrates family as the cornerstone of our lives, and the fundamental building block of society and the Church. Pope Francis chose “The Gospel of the Family: Joy for the World” as the theme for this major pastoral celebration. During these five days, people will share, pray and reflect, grow in faith and love, celebrate, as well as gather strength to continue the journey of life. Thousands of families and individuals from all over Ireland and the world are expected to attend (and hopefully, Pope Francis too). A five-day adult ticket for August 22nd-26th (priced at €68 if pre-registering online or €78 for on-the-day registration) will include admission to the 3-day congress, a guaranteed ticket for the Festival of Families and a ticket for the final Mass. Children under 18 are free but registration with a family or group is required.

A Lion's Heart: Praying with the Saints of EnglandMay 11 - 20, 2018
Join Father Nathan Cromly, CSJ, and Eagle Eye Ministries on a pilgrimage to encounter saints and martyrs of England. Visit sites in London, Oxford, Canterbury and beyond, many of them associated with heroic Catholics martyrs who shed their blood during the Protestant Reformation. Forty-two have been canonized and a further 242 rank among the beatified. However, the complete number of those who died or suffered harsh persecution for their faith during this time cannot be accurately counted. Their stories, in addition to daily Mass and devotions in historic sites, will inspire you!“Walking in the footsteps of the martyrs who bore witness to Christ in times of trial will give us the courage to face our own challenges with the same tenacity. Let us go forward in haste to meet the Lord and shine His light!” ~ Fr. Nathan Cromly, CSJ
