LAST week marked five years since Ireland hosted the World Meeting of Families in Dublin, from 21 – 26 August 2018 . This was a very significant celebration of family life in Ireland, attended by thousands including Pope Francis who has had the family at the heart of his pontificate over the past ten years. Pope Francis sees families as “God’s dream for humanity”.

Former professional footballer Keith Fahey shares his journey to Christ via Alpha. Despite appearing to have everything he could possibly want while being a professional athlete, Keith battled hidden struggles in his life — stemming from a troubled childhood — by turning to substances. After his footballing career came to an end, he found himself alone, terrified and lost. In 2021, Keith was invited by a friend to try Alpha online and experienced a life-changing conversion with God’s overpowering love flowing into his heart. “The truth set me free.” — Keith Fahey
