Volunteering for World Meeting of Families 2018

Richard Brennan, Volunteers Project Manager for WMOF2018, appeals to people of all ages to get involved as volunteers for this great event.



The World Meeting of the Families 2018 will attract thousands of Irish and International pilgrims. Organising it and seeing it through will only be possible with the help of generous volunteers who will put their love and talents to service.

In 2012, for the 50th International Eucharistic Congress, approximately 2,000 volunteers gave their time, abilities and service to organise this event in various roles, such as stewards, welcoming and information teams, photographers, bloggers, media support, logistics, programming support, among many roles. The volunteers were amazing and loved the experience of being part of the event from the inside.

If you volunteered for IEC2012 please volunteer with us again and help us encourage others to do so too. If you have not volunteered before, we would like to have you too. We are seeking several thousand volunteers; we hope WMOF2018 will appeal to many to help!

Our volunteers are vital to the success of the World Meeting of Families. We will be grateful for every single minute that you give us of your precious time and we truly value your contribution and do hope you will consider applying as a member of our Volunteer Team.

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who expressed an interest through our website in volunteering and signed up for our newsletters and to all of those who contacted us. Everyone looking to volunteer must now officially apply to become a WMOF2018 volunteer through our online application link.
