With Christmas only little more than a week away, the World Meeting of Families is making items available for last-minute shopping on their website, WorldMeeting2015.org.
“We have everything from T-shirts and hats to our most popular items, which are those with the iconic image (of the Holy Family),” said Lizanne Pando, director of marketing and communications for the World Meeting of Families. “It’s really interesting to see, with the time of year, that one of our most popular items is the Christmas ornament with our iconic image.”
The organization for the families’ congress in Philadelphia next Sept. 22-25 wants to make sure everyone gets their World Meeting of Families gifts on time. For people using standard shipping, organizers suggest ordering gifts no later than Thursday, Dec. 18 to get the gifts by Christmas Eve and no later than Monday, Dec. 22 if using express shipping.
The World Meeting of Families is offering a sale this week of 20 percent off the price of sweatshirts with the congress logo — browse all the items for sale in nine categories, from apparel to jewelry to items for the home or office.
“It’s exciting that at this early stage we have so many different items to choose from,” Pando said.
The shipping options allow families to order the popular World Meeting of Families Christmas ornament and have it on their tree in time for Christmas morning.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
