Armagh Diocesan Launch of World Meeting of Families (WMOF)
On Wednesday 8th February Archbishop Eamon Martin led the Armagh diocesan launch of WMOF in Dromantine SMA Conference and Retreat Centre, Newry.This launch was prepared for by the diocesan WMOF core team. All present gathered in their Pastoral Areas. The format was four –fold.
- A brief history on the seventeen Pastoral Area Resource Teams (PART)
- Two presentations on the work of women’s aid and ideas for liturgies and retreats with children and young people.
- Group discussions within pastoral areas and feedback. Each Pastoral Area chose one area they would concentrate on in preparation for WMOF. Core team members will accompany each group as they explore their chosen initiative. Ideas can be shared on armaghdiocesanpastoralplan.ie or adpp.ie
- A Commissioning ritual. All present were sent out to work towards and beyond WMOF.
