  • Sharing our personal faith stories is one of the ways we are called to witness to Jesus Christ;
  • It is vital to learn how to name, articulate and share our reasons for faith in an age where faith is hard to find;
  • We strengthen our own faith when we remember all the strong reasons for Christian faith;
  • Our bishop is seeking your insights for an upcoming pastoral letter on faith;
  • To evangelize and build up the faith of others through website, social media, and our Diocesan Newsletter as well as through an event during our diocesan Year of Faith Festival, Nov. 8-10.

Please note that “I believe because” selections for these publications/events will be taken from among submissions that arrive before Oct. 21. (When submitting your reflection, please let us know if we have permission to share your submission and name.)
