Maltese family chosen to give service at the IX World Meeting of Families


Jesmond Magro, together with his wife Joanne and their daughter Grazia, from Żabbar, members of the Disciples of Jesus Community and leaders of cells of evangelisa­tion, have been chosen to represent the Internatio­nal Organism at the Service of the Parish Cells of Evangelisa­tion (IOSPCE) during the IX World Meeting of Families being held during this week in Dublin, Ireland.

The meeting will consist of three main parts: first the Congress of Families on the theme of ‘The Joy of Love’ (Amoris Letitia); the Festival of Families, which over 80,000 people from all over the world are expected to attend; and the concluding Mass celebrated by Pope Francis.

Throughout the week, different internatio­nal movements, associatio­ns, communitie­s and methods of service will be sharing their family experience from different stands especially dedicated to families.

The Magro family, who can communicat­e in various languages, will be meeting people attending the meeting to share their experience in the cells of evangelisa­tion and to give informatio­n on the Parish Cells of Evangelisa­tion and the Internatio­nal Organism (IOSPCE), which was recognised by the Holy See three years ago to promote this method of parish evangelisa­tion within the Catholic Church.
