The next event will be the 10th WMOF, after the first was also held in Rome in 1994
The next World Meeting of Families will be held in 2021 in Rome, announced Cardinal Kevin Farrell at the end of the closing Mass of Dublin’s WMOF.
This will be the third time that the Eternal City hosts the World Meeting; it did as well in 1994 (the first WMOF) and during the Great Jubilee of 2000.
The others have been held in: Rio de Janeiro (Brazil, 1997), Rome (2000), Manila (Philippines, 2003), Valencia (Spain, 2006), Mexico City (Mexico, 2009 ), Milan (Italy, 2012), Philadelphia (USA, 2015) and finally Dublin.
The organization of these meetings is entrusted to the dicastery presided over by Cardinal Farrell, as stipulated in its constitution published last May.
