World Meeting of Families (WMF)

The School of Evangelization of the Diocese of Brooklyn is sponsoring a one day pilgrimage to the Eighth World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia on Wednesday, September 23, 2015. Saint John Paul II created the World Meeting of Families in 1994 in Rome to explore the critical role the family plays in society and to give families opportunities to talk with others about the challenges and blessings that all families have. wmof logo w fonts
