[Editor’s note: we received the following announcement from The Catholic Gene. It has been a long time since we’ve been a part of a blog carnival and this looks like a good one!]
Do you have ancestors who worshipped in the Catholic faith? Would you like to share photos and/or stories about a Catholic church (or churches) that played a special role in your family members’ faith lives? If so, please join The Catholic Gene in a celebration of Annus Fidei: the Year of Faith 2012-2013.
In honor of this new Year of Faith 2012-2013, the Catholic Gene is hosting a “Doors of Faith” celebration online. Here’s how you can participate:
- Share a photo and/or write a story on your blog about a Catholic church in which you and/or your ancestors worshiped that played a role in your family’s faith lives. (We’d love to see a photo of the “doors of faith” – the entrance doors of the church – but if a photo is not available, please at least share your story with us!)
- Send the link to your article to us by sending an email to CatholicGene@gmail.com. Deadline: Friday, October 5, 2012.
- Finally, celebrate the new Year of Faith with us on its opening day – October 11, 2012 – by seeing the photos and reading the stories of other families’ “Doors of Faith” that will be highlighted here at The Catholic Gene on that date.
Places of worship have played important roles within many of our lives and the lives of our ancestors. As this Year of Faith begins, we look forward to seeing the photos and reading the stories of the Catholic churches that have helped to spark the light of faith in the lives of your families over the centuries.
