Year of Faith

Welcome to the "Year of Faith" diocesan website, yearoffaith.ca. As the weeks and months go by, we will be posting news, articles, testimonials, and suggestions for activities and celebrations to inspire and support/encourage Christian communities. These suggestions should not be seen as additions to the current pastoral activity, but as invitations to put it under the new light of the "Year of Faith."

I encourage you to visit the site regularly, and to add to it by sharing your personal experience. For a start, we can allow the theme that we chose for this special year in our archdiocese to inspire reflection. The theme is the question that Jesus asked John the Baptist's disciples: What are you looking for? (Jn 1:38-39).

This question concerns us. We will have the entire year to answer it, individually and as a community (or as Church).
