MIAMI | The worldwide Church will celebrate the 10th World Meeting of Families from June 22 to 26 in Rome, but Pope Francis wants the celebration to be reflected in all the world’s dioceses.
The goal is for each diocese to place families at the center of pastoral attention during that week, carrying out activities that reflect the theme of the 2022 World Meeting of Families, which is “Family love: a vocation and a path to holiness.”
To that end, the Archdiocese of Miami will celebrate the World Meeting of Families locally with a Family Faith Festival on Saturday, June 25, from noon to 5 p.m. at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, 1691 N.W. 25 St., Doral.
All families are welcome to share in a fun day filled not only with opportunities for prayer and adoration as a family but also crafts, games, and activities for all ages along with live music and food trucks.
The day will conclude with a 5 p.m. Mass celebrated by Archbishop Thomas Wenski.

Prior to the festival, the Office of Marriage and Family Life will present an online webinar, "The Catholic Family as the Domestic Church," on Wednesday, June 22, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Allan and Veronica Caballero will delve into the importance of the Catholic family in today's society and how we are called to be the domestic church.
This event will take place online only. Register at this link: https://conta.cc/3LoP89v.
