Villanova University professor Kevin Hughes will share his perspectives on the World Meeting of Families and its meaning moving forward in a talk Tuesday, April 19 at 7: p.m. in the St. John Vianney Parish Hall, 350 Conshohocken State Road, Gladwyne.
Looking back at the energy and excitement that surrounded the World Meeting of Families and Pope Francis’ visit to Philadelphia, Hughes will speak of the significance of the WMOF and what we learned as Catholics, as Philadelphians and as families.
Hughes is associate professor and chair of the Humanities Department and Classical Studies Program at Villanova University.
The program is free and the parish and community are invited to participate.

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.
