The New Evangelization is a call to each Catholic to deepen his or her own faith, have confidence in the Gospel, and possess a willingness to share the gospel. The New Evangelization is first and foremost a personal encounter with Jesus Christ; it is an invitation to deepen one's relationship with Christ. It is also a call to each person to share his or her faith with others. The Year of Faith, just like the New Evangelization, calls Catholics to conversion in order to deepen their relationship with Christ and to share with others. - 2012 United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
As directed by Archbishop Gustavo, each deanery will celebrate a Mass for the beginning of the Year of Faith and the observance of the 50th Anniversary of the II Vatican Council.
