Year of Faith sees catechetical competition, seminar on marriage

Over 240 competitors representing various parishes in the diocese participated in a catechetical competition on September 28 sponsored by the deanery of Yong Jia of the Diocese of Wen Zhou in the province of Zhe Jiang.

The initiative was part of the celebration of the Year of Faith, "to encourage the study of catechism and the reading of Sacred Scripture in every community", said the organizer, Don Cao Guang Zhun, pastor of the parish of Nan Xi. He led a reflection on the fundamental Christian formation, highlighting "the need to share what we have received".

Before the closure of the Year of Faith, the same deanery is planning a Seminar to deepen the value of Christian marriage and offer guidance to couples on how to live it in daily life.

The dioceses in mainland China conduct many activities in the Year of Faith aimed at formation in faith, love, prayer and evangelization.
