  • The 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council.
  • The 20th anniversary of the publication of the Catechism.

  • finding ways to spend time in prayer.
  • reflecting upon the Documents of the Second Vatican Council.
  • renewing your familiarity with the Catechism.
  • expressing your faith and proclaiming the Creed.
  • speaking about your faith to other people.
