Letter to Priests from Archbishop Martin
Friday May 11th
I wish to draw your attention to the front-page lead story on the World Meeting of Families in the newspaper The Irish Catholic which may be on sale in your Church this weekend.
Unfortunately, the information reported on the cost of the World Meeting is inaccurate and The Irish Catholic has amended its story on its website.
I regret, however, that the newspaper should have published such a story quoting only unnamed “sources” without input from the World Meeting of Families organisers.
I would ask that attention be drawn to this correction in an appropriate manner and to assure those who have generously contributed to the National Collections for the World Meeting of Families that no increase in the budget for the event has been authorised.
Archbishop of Dublin
