Year of Faith

Year of Faith 2012-2013

"...They called the church together and reported what God had done with them and how he had opened the door of faith..." (Acts 14:27)

October 11, 2012 - November 24, 2013

The Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI has called for this year to be celebrated as a "Year of Faith" to serve as an invitation to a “an authentic and renewed conversion to the Lord, the one Saviour of the world” (Apostolic Letter, Porta Fidei, 6).

The aim of this year is that every Christian may rediscover “the journey of faith so as to shed ever clearer light on the joy and renewed enthusiasm of the encounter with Christ” (Apostolic Letter, Porta Fidei, 2).
