Dr. Carolyn Woo on Year of Faith

CRS president, Dr. Carolyn Y. Woo, has a guest post at

“Catholics around the world are preparing for a Year of Faith, proclaimed by Pope Benedict XVI to begin tomorrow. (October 11) The Year of Faith marks the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council and the 20th anniversary of the 1992 release of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

“Pope Benedict has called on dioceses to promote the goals of the New Evangelization during the Year of Faith. This effort is something we take very much to heart here at Catholic Relief Services. You might find that surprising because, as you know, although CRS provides services to the poor and most vulnerable people across the world, we do not seek to convert people of other faiths to Catholicism.”
