VATICAN II RESOURCES

In the pastoral recommendations for the Year of Faith prepared by the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, we were reminded that the Year of Faith offers a special opportunity for all believers to deepen their knowledge of the primary documents of the Second Vatican Council. To assist you in providing on-going faith formation with regard to the extensive and rich teachings of the Second Vatican Council, the Year of Faith Committee offered a workshop on the history and writings of Vatican II.  The workshop took place at Wadhams Hall on November 22-23, 2013 with the hope the workshop would be an impetus for adult faith formation opportunities on Vatican II at the parish level in the coming year.

We hope that you will use these resources for your own study, as well as discussion groups and adult faith formation groups in your parishes.
