Booking has now Closed for Final Mass in Phoenix Park!
 Over 500,000 tickets have been booked for the Final Mass of WMOF2018, which  will be celebrated by Pope Francis. All tickets have now been reserved and  booking has closed for this event. The Mass will take place at 3pm in the  Phoenix Park, Dublin on Sunday 26 August.
 
 Requests for tickets  for WMOF2018 have been overwhelming and we are delighted to announce  that each of the events is now fully booked.
Within a  week of tickets being released to the public, 400,000 tickets for the Closing  Mass in Dublin’s Phoenix Park were booked, all 45,000 tickets for Knock  Shrine were booked within the first 4 hours and the Pastoral Congress in the  RDS is now also fully booked, with a record-breaking 37,000 registrations.
 
 We are delighted that so much interest has been expressed and, with over 10,000  overseas bookings, we look forward to welcoming many pilgrims and families  from all over the world. WMOF2018 is a record-breaking Word Meeting of  Families with the highest number of people registered to the Pastoral  Congress, the highest number of international pilgrims attending and the  highest amount of children and young people attending! Thank you to all of  you!
 
 This month, we have news and updates on the programme for the Pastoral  Congress and the Host a Family project, information on the WMOF2018 Pilgrim  Walk, an outline of our sustainability theme, ‘Our Common Home’, an  introduction to our ‘Humans of World Meeting of Families 2018’ Facebook page,  resources to encourage preparation in the home for WMOF2018, as well as links  to our latest blogs.
 
 With only a few short  weeks to go, we are all looking forward with great anticipation to August and  a joyful exploration and celebration of love and family life today.
