The Year of Faith proclaimed by Pope Benedict XV opened on Oct. 11, the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council. Pope Benedict asks his Catholic members to study the documents of Vatican II. These documents call for “full, conscious and active participation,” not only in the liturgy, but in the life of the Church.
Holy Trinity Catholic Church and School, 2926 Beaver Ave., invites its parishioners to share a meal and learn why it is important for all generations to understand and live Vatican II. There are two opportunities to participate: Sunday, Nov. 4, from noon – 2 p.m. or Wednesday, Nov. 7 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. For more information and to register go to http://holytrinitydm.org.
