World Meeting of Families - Philadelphia 2015

Our Sunday Visitor is proud to be the exclusive publisher of the preparatory catechesis, Love Is Our Mission: The Family Fully Alive. [press release]

Launched in 1994 under Saint Pope John Paul II’s papacy, the World Meeting of Families is a joyous celebration of family and faith held every three years. Philadelphia’s Archbishop Charles J. Chaput says that the 2015 meeting “is meant to be a gift not just for Catholics in Philadelphia, but for every person of good will in the wider world.”

Follow Our Sunday Visitor's World Meeting of Families page throughout the year as we continually add family resources.



Today's most important issues and questions are addressed and answered in Our Sunday Visitor's pamphlets line. Whether you use them as bulletin inserts, in a rack on the church information table, or as handouts at RCIA or other group meetings, our wide variety of constantly updated subjects can fill your need. We even offer specially sized pamphlets for inclusion in your offering envelopes!
