In celebration of the Year of the Family and National Week for Life and the Family, the Archdiocese of Vancouver is hosting 5 virtual events for families.

“The Joy of Love experienced by families is also the joy of the Church.”

We will celebrate families with a video, play Kahoot, Archbishop Miller will answer questions, we will have TikTok videos and finish with a family rosary. This event is organized by the Ministries and Outreach Office and ecclesial movements and new communities.
