Throughout the day there will be a wide variety of kids’ and teens’ activities, praise & worship bands featuring Ben Walther and PJ Chavez, and reasonably priced food. As in the past, Eucharistic Adoration and Confession will be available, plus pony rides and the popular vendor area.

The featured speaker is clinical psychologist, author and nationally syndicated talk show host Dr. Ray Guarendi. The Most Reverend George V. Murry, S.J., Bishop of Youngstown, will preside at the Closing Mass at 5:00 p.m.

Admission is free but donations will be accepted. Participants are encouraged to bring a blanket and lawn chairs. Families can enter a free raffle for one week at Catholic Familyland during their 2018 Family Fest season.

The Faith and Family Festival promises to be the largest gathering of Catholic families in the Diocese of Youngstown. The event is sponsored by the Diocesan Office of Pro-Life, Marriage and Family Life in partnership with Walsh University, and with the help of many donors and corporate sponsors.
