As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council (Vatican II), and the 20th anniversary of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Pope Benedict has declared that the Catholic Church celebrate a Year of Faith from October 11, 2012 to November 24, 2013. During the Year of Faith, Catholics are asked to study and reflect on the Church Documents of Vatican II and also reflect on the Catechism of the Catholic Church so that they can deepen their knowledge of the Faith. For more information, activities, and prayers for this Year of Faith, please see the resources below. It’s a time to grow in faith!
