Waiting for Dublin

Preparatory resources for the parishes will be presented and available online on August 21st

A Guide for Facilitators, a volume containing practical initiatives, and another on the six-part program for parishes based on “Amoris Laetitia” are the preparatory resources for the Dublin World Meeting of Families that will be presented on 21 August, at Our Lady of Knock, together with the icon of the Holy Family, the official hymn and the official prayer of the Meeting.

The booklets of the program “Let’s talk Family! Let’s be Family!” are Easy to read, enjoyable and full of colorful pictures. They are structured specifically for parishes, in the view of the year-long journey of preparation, shared by all the communities around the world, for the international event.

The first of the three volumes, the Local Facilitators Guide, is designed to support diocesan delegates and their teams in the organization of volunteers in parishes or in the parish networks, foresees two work sessions to be held in fall and spring. It includes texts and videos, practical tips, and techniques for facilitating discussion groups on various topics.

The second text of the program “Let’s Talk family! Let’s be family!” is a collection of simple and engaging activities for communities and families. As to “Amoris Laetitia - Six Sessions Parish Conversation,” it is a six-part program intended for community gatherings and reflection in view of the Meeting in Dublin.

All the texts will be available on line (http://www.amoris.ie/) starting on 21 August and in book form in September. The proposed videos will be put online in December, along with other downloadable resources.
