MIAMI | Archbishop Thomas Wenski is inviting all of South Florida’s Catholics to join him in celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Archdiocese of Miami, which was founded Oct. 7, 1958. Following is a listing of planned Diamond Jubilee Year events. This calendar is being updated as needed.

Dress down day and 60th anniversary presentation

Indult Masses for the feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary

  • Weekend of Oct. 6-7 in all parishes (Office of Worship): An Indult is a temporary or personal favor granted by the competent ecclesiastical authority for the good of his local Church. Thus bishops in the United States are permitted to grant indults for fast and feast days. In this case, in order to celebrate a Mass other than the Solemnity of the Lord's Day (in this case, the 27th Sunday in Ordinary time), a special permission is needed from the competent ecclesiastical authority (in this case Archbishop Wenski) to replace it with the archdiocesan feast day, the feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, Oct. 7. (Code of Canon Law, Canons 85-93)

Solemn vespers and conferral of diocesan honors

A White Gala to Honor the White Collar

60th Anniversary Picnic

Welcome Weekend

Thank your priest at 60th gala

How many times have you told all the clergy in your life how much they mean to you? Can you think of a priest, or group of priests, who have been a constant in your life?

You can pay tribute during the gala dinner for the archdiocese’s 60th anniversary — whose theme is A White Gala to Honor the White Collar — by purchasing a 60th anniversary tribute ad to celebrate or commemorate all the priests who have made a difference in your life.

These digital ads will be displayed on large screens and iPads throughout the dinner at Marlins Stadium. They also will be posted online in the Development Office’s Tribute Ad Gallery and sent to clergy and sponsors post-gala as a digital flipbook.

To find out more and purchase a tribute ad, go to or call Grace Veloz at 305-762-1064.
