Have you heard about The Year of Faith?
The Holy Father, Pope Benedict has declared a Year of Faith beginning October 11th and celebrated through November 24, 2013. Click on this link to go to our Parish Year of Faith page. You can also look at this video by the U.S. Bishops that give you a 3 minute explanation of the Year of Faith. At the heart of our Catholic Faith is the Nicene Creed, the statement of the truths of God, revealed in Jesus Christ; these are essential and unchangeable truths, beliefs of our faith. The Adult Catechism of the Catholic Church explains the truths that are contained in this Creed. Here is a video on The Creed by the U.S. Bishops. This video will give you a brief explanation of the Nicene Creed and it's meaning in our lives today. We will continue to offer you more video's and other updates on our faith here and on our Parish Year of Faith page.
Fr. Robert Barron's site, www.wordonfire.org, provides many great resources to learn more about our Catholic faith. You'll find them under the tab 'woftv'. Here are links to some of the video's you may find interesting.
