.- The Archdiocese of Chicago has organized its second Catholic Festival of Faith. It will be held Feb. 12-18 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont.
The three-day celebration is expected to draw thousands of participants and “is open to Catholics of all ages and to all those interested in the Catholic faith,” said Fr. Thomas Franzman, event chair and director of the Archdiocese of Chicago’s Department of Evangelization, Catechesis and Worship.
“The Catholic Festival of Faith will offer Catholic liturgies, opportunities for prayer, concerts, keynote speakers and hundreds of workshops – including one offered by Francis Cardinal George, OMI, Archbishop of Chicago – and is designed to assist Catholics to become part of the ‘new evangelization’ so often referenced by the late Pope John Paul II,” said Fr. Franzman.
Many of the presentations will be offered in Spanish and Polish as well as English, and special sessions have been created for teens in Catholic and public high schools.
Full registration is $70; one-day registration is $35. For more information, go to www.catholicfest.org.
