The My Year of Faith mobile app is a response to the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI’s call to utilize new media and technology in the New Evangelization. My Year of Faith engages the faithful each day of the 410 days of the Year of Faith, providing an online community of daily catechesis, challenges for spiritual growth and opportunities for participating in the New Evangelization.
“My Year of Faith” follows in the tradition of Archbishop John F. Noll who utilized the best agency of publicity of his day to spread and defend the Catholic faith. It offers every user a format to engage daily in his faith, deepen his relationship with Jesus Christ, and spread the Good News to every corner of the digital continent.
