Year of Faith: "With his Apostolic Letter of October 11, 2011, Porta Fideii. . . ,Pope Benedict XVI declared that a "Year of Faith" will begin on October 11, 2012 and conclude on November 24, 2013. October 11, 2012, the first day of the Year of Faith, is the fiftieth anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council. . . (Vatican II) and also the twentieth anniversary of the Cathechism of the Catholic Church. During the Year of Faith, Catholics are asked to study and reflect on the documents of Vatican II and the catechism so that they may deepen their knowledge of the faith."

As part of the Year of Faith, the Buffalo State College Newman Center sent several representatives to Our Lady of Victory Bascilica in Lackawanna to be commissioned as "evangelizers" by Bishop Malone. These representatives will meet in the coming weeks with Newman Center staff to brainstorm on creating, planning, and facilitating programs that help us deepend our faith and relationship with God.
