Hannah Evans from Trócaire explains how this award helps families learn about the lives of other families around the world ahead of WMOF2018.

Who is this award for?

This award will provide you and your family with an avenue to learn about the lives of other families around the world where Trócaire works. You will learn about their daily lives, the issues that they face and share in their hopes and dreams for the future.

The ‘Trócaire Romero Family Award’ aims to compliment the ‘Amoris’ preparation programme for the World Meeting of Families.

Each participating family will receive a certificate and a solidarity gift from a country where Trócaire works.

They will also be invited to an awards ceremony that coincides with the celebrations at the World Meeting of Families gathering in Dublin next August 2018, as well as being entered into a draw to win an eco-friendly ‘Green Family trip’ to the Slieve Aughty Centre, Co. Galway.

The Closing date for entries is Thursday 31st May 2018 (Feast of Corpus Christi)

What is a Family?

“There is no stereotype of the ideal family, but rather a challenging mosaic made up of many different realities, with all their joys, hopes and problems.” (Pope Francis)
