October 11, 2012 - November 24, 2013 - YEAR OF FAITH
The Year of Faith was announced by Pope Benedict XVI in 2011 in his apostolic letter, Porta Fidei. It began on October 11, 2012, the 50th Anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council. It also coincides with the 20th Anniversary of the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The year will end on November 24, 2013, the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Universal King. During the Year of Faith, Catholics are asked to study and reflect on the documents of Vatican II and the catechism so that they may deepen their knowledge of the faith. Learn more: www.usccb.org
