A specially commissioned WMOF2018 icon of the Holy Family was unveiled and anointed on 21August 2017, during the launch of the one-year programme of preparation at the National Novena in Knock, Ireland.

The icon was written by the Redemptoristine Contemplative Community in Drumcondra as part of their ongoing prayer for families. The icon is meant to encourage both reflection and prayer as part of the journey of preparations to World Meeting of Families 2018.

Following the official unveiling at the National Novena in Knock, the icon will be available to travel to each diocese in Ireland.
