How did the Family Fully Alive Festival get started?  Inspired by the World Meeting of Families and the visit by Pope Francis to Philadelphia in 2015, the Family Fully Alive Festival was started to continue this mission at the parish level.  "Love is our mission: the family fully alive" was the theme for the World Meeting of Families 2015.  This theme was inspired by the words of St. Irenaeus who said that "the glory of God is man fully alive."
