Enjoy The CatholicTV Network's coverage of the World Meeting of Families (WMOF) from Dublin, Ireland. You can watch this year's WMOF coverage live and on demand. The theme for this year's meeting The Joy of Love comes from Pope Francis' encyclical The Joy of Love (Amoris Laetitia). Wednesday through Friday, each day has its own theme. CatholicTV will also broadcast papal programming from Ireland including a visit to Knock. The schedule below is tentative. 

In the meantime, relive some of the network's coverage of the 2015 WMOF in Philadelphia. Watch on-demand videos (above) from our friends at Salt + Light: a special series looking at the patron Saints of the World Meeting of families (Pope Saint John Paul II and Saint Gianna Beretta Molla), as well as other inspirational figures for families.
