Year of Faith











Year of Faith          Oct. 11, 2012 - November 24, 2013 


What does the Pope have in mind?


Faith, founded on our encounter with the Risen Christ, can be rediscovered in its wholeness and all its splendor.
“In our days too faith is a gift to rediscover, to cultivate and to bear witness to” because the Lord “grants each one of us to live the beauty and joy of being Christians.” Pope Benedict XVI

Why will we hear about New Evangelization?


This year invites the faithful to understand more profoundly that the foundation of Christian faith is “the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction.” Pope Benedict XVI
