Archdiocese of Miami, per policy, requires that any speaker - clergy, religious or lay - coming from outside the archdiocese be approved by the Office of the Chancellor for Canonical Affairs. No event can be publicized in the archdiocesan newspaper or website unless the speaker has received this approval. Please submit your approval request via form below. Please do so at least 14 days prior to the event - OR - if you plan to advertise the event, the approval needs to be in place before you start your advertising campaign.
