Beginning today, October 11, this liturgical year will be called the Year of Faith. The Year of Faith comes at a critical point in my life. From my previous life experiences, faith was first and foremost something that I learned about at school, and subsequently strove to live out. I completed all of my elementary and secondary education in Catholic institutions in Ontario, surrounded by other Catholics and a religious education curriculum. I also completed an Honours Bachelor of Science degree at St. Michael's College, which is by tradition the Catholic college at the University of Toronto (U of T). In this undergraduate degree, I made sure to continue to study religion by completing a minor in Christianity and Culture.
