Council 10762 Receives Year of Faith Award

St. Pius X Co. 10762 is honored to be the recipient of the Year of Faith Award. This award was presented to those councils who engaged in faith formation activities during the Year of Faith announced by Pope Benedict XVI. The Year of Faith began on October 11, 2012, the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council and the 20th anniversary of the promulgation of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The close of the Year of Faith took place on November 24, 2013, the Feast of Christ the King.

In announcing the  Year of Faith, Pope Benedict XVI called for a "renewal of the Church ... through the witness offered by the lives of believers. "

The Order's Year of Faith program was based on the four categories outlined by Pope Benedict in his document Porta Fidei (Door of Faith) that are designed to lead each believer into a deeper relationship with Christ and his Church -- Faith PROFESSED, Faith CELEBRATED, Faith LIVED and Faith PRAYED.

In order to receive the Year of Faith Award, councils had to conduct at least one activity in each of the four areas as outlined in the Year of Faith leaflet and submit an application to Supreme.
