The Pillars of Faith Series

Celebrate the Year of Faith!

Catholic Year of Faith
Year of FaithFrom October 2012 to November 2013, the Roman Catholic Church will be celebrating the Year of Faith in commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of the Second Vatican Council and the tenth anniversary of the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. In a particular way this year will be focused on developing a greater appreciation for the "new evangelization."

Throughout the Year of Faith, Ave Maria Press will be highlighting books, bulletin inserts, and other resources to help adult Catholics, parish ministers, religion teachers, and catechists come to a deeper appreciation of their faith and understanding of how to share it with others.
