Celebration for Year of the Family

Date: Sunday 26 June, 2022
Time: 10:30am

Five years after the publication of the post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation, Amoris laetita, Pope Francis launched the year of “Amoris Laetitia Family” which will conclude with the World Meeting of Families from 22-26 June in Rome.

A Diocesan Mass of Thanksgiving, marking the end of the year of the family, will be held  on Sunday 26th June, at 10:30am at the St Francis Xavier Cathedral, Wollongong. At this mass, nominated families from across the Diocese will receive a candle to take back to their communities, with the image of the Icon of the Holy Family that was commissioned for, and is now situated in the Cathedral. Prayer cards with the image of the icon, will also be provided for all parishes, to be distributed on that weekend.
