“Let’s Talk Family! Let’s Be Family!” Programme

March 28, 2018 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm

In his apostolic document,The Joy of Love, Pope Francis expresses his hope that families and those involved in supporting families will study his document carefully and patiently.This Amoris: Let’s Talk Family! Let’s Be Family! programme is an initiative to promote and resource this study in preparation for the World Meeting of Families in Dublin in August 2018.

In each session of this six–session parish conversation,we are invited will be invited to take part in a process which is designed to be interactive and participate. We will be helped to reflect on and articulate our experience of family life and our response to Pope Francis’ reflections in The Joy of Love.

The programme takes, as its starting point, people’s experience of love and their hopes and fears regarding marriage and family.

This exciting initiative will begin on the first Wednesday in Lent at 8pm in the Parish Pastoral Centre in Greystones and will continue for six weeks.
It would be an ideal commitment to make for the Lenten Season.

You are welcome to attend even if you have not attended previous evenings. Come along for an informative and interesting discussion followed by tea/coffee.

If you were unable to join us or would like to recap on the discussion or the exploration, you will find the guiding document and accompanying video clips here:
