The WMOF Icon has been written for the coming World Meeting of Families on 21-26
August 2018, in Dublin. It is said that icons are ‘written’ rather than ‘painted’ as they present to us a visual narrative they are not like a portrait they are an image which invites us to prayer. This Icon is depicting the Holy Family at the center with two gospel stories at either side – The Raising of Jairus’ Daughter and the Wedding Feast of Cana.

More information will be updated in the coming months.
