On the Thirtieth Sunday of Ordinary Time Pope Francis welcomes families to St. Peter’s Square for Mass on the Day for Family. Similar to the World Youth Day schedules the Mass for Family is celebrated annually and every three years the World Meeting of Families is held at a different location. Blessed Pope John Paul II initiated the World Meeting of Families in 1994.
Just prior to his resignation on February 25, 2013, Pope –Emeritus Benedict XVI announced the selection of Philadelphia as the location for the 8th World Meeting of Families in 2015 which takes place September 22-27. Archbishop of Philadelphia Chaput thanked Pope Benedict "for choosing Philadelphia and for setting these dates before he concludes his ministry as pastor of the universal church." Previous host cities include Rome, Rio de Janeiro, Manila, Valencia, Mexico City and Milan.

Organizers for the Meeting of Families in Philadelphia have launched a website and logo for the event, which is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of people.
