Portraits of Faith
Sr. Mechtilde OMara, C.S.J.
Number of pages: 120
Inspiring stories of faith from young adult Canadian Catholics.
Although we may grow discouraged by the frequent reports of declining numbers in church attendance across Canada, Portraits of Faith offers to us a contrasting view from over a dozen young Canadian Catholics who embrace the faith and are living it today. Through inspiring stories, we discover what draws young adults to the Church and what faith leaders can do to engage and inspire young adult Catholics. Portraits of Faith is a must-have book for all those yearning to be renewed in their own faith.
