What is your parish doing in the Year of Faith?

Please share what your parish is initiating for the coming Year of Faith? Our newsletter today includes numerous invitations that were publicised at the beginning of the Summer holidays:

1. ‘If you’re not a Catholic, or have not yet been Confirmed, and would like to explore the Catholic Faith as an adult then come on Thursday evenings’. EVENGELIUM: Come and find our what the Catholic Church believes and teaches. No strings, no commitments (at this stage), just come and see, and/or bring a friend.

2. Take A Stand is a Catholic Youth initiative for 14-30 year olds, meeting once a month and welcoming Young Catholics in neighbouring Parishes, getting involved in its main activities of YouCat(the Youth Catechism), building international solidarity among young Catholics and providing inspiration on a day to day basis.

Take A Stand started at World Youth Day, Madrid 2011 where millions of young Catholics were inspired by the WYD theme ‘Firmes a la Fe’, standing firm in the Faith.

 We were among them. Returning to the United Kingdom, we were inspired by the goal of learning the Catechism of the Catholic Faith (Youcat) spreading the message to others and becoming faithful followers of the Lord Jesus. TAKE A STAND has grown into a vibrant network, organising regular events and continually seeking to find new, innovative ways of evangelisation.

3. The Year of Faith starts on 11th Oct. Every Catholic home needs a copy of the Catechism of the Catholic Church or

the Compendium or You Cat. All our homilies & activities will link with this.

4. If you’re a Catholic who wants to deepen your Catholic Faith during the Year of Faith- none of us should miss this opportunity – then come on 5 consecutive Fridays (or those that you can manage) 8 – 9.30pm, upstairs in the Pastoral Centre starting on 21st September 2012. CATHOLICISM

  1. Thanks for sharing these resources for evangelizing and spreading the faith. I still have not seen Fr Barron’s Catechism series yet. I will make sure to put aside some time to watch it this month, when I get back to business in New York. God bless!

    • The Catechism series is just amazing, I bought one for use at home because it’s got so much to offer. There are many layers in each episode and it’s just so much food for thought. Definitely a good one! I managed to buy the set on Ebay for £40-00!!! A real bargain. Shop around.
      Please share programmes that you will be using or know about too.
