Philadelphia to host World Meeting of Families


Our beautiful city will play host to the “World Meeting of Families” which be held on September 22-27, 2015.

This was learned from Fr. Efren Esmilla during the meeting with Mrs. Hermie and Dr. Ferdie Aczon, and Sister Getrude Borres at the OLH rectory recently. With them were the FECGP and different prayer groups.

The event will highlight the importance of “families” as Catholics deal with the many issues that confront the very fabric of our modern American lives.

The future visit of Pope Francis to Philadelphia is another reason for this heightened interest as it proved significant for Philadelphians because the Pontiff chose Philadelphia as his first visit to the United States. We may recall that earlier, a delegation from Philadelphia which included Philadelphia City Mayor Michael Nutter made a visit to Pope Francis at the Vatican last year.

      Bishop McIntyre and the Coordinating Group of Fr. Efren met recently and proved to be very fruitful.
