A Summer of Faith During the Year of Faith

The Year of Faith that we have been celebrating continues through November, 2013. The summer months present an excellent time for marking the Year of Faith, perhaps in a more leisurely manner such as over the course of several weeks. Here’s a resource that can help your parish do just that:

Days of Faith











Days of Faith conveniently provides everything you need to host a mini-retreat or faith-formation event during the summer months. In this kit, I share 4 PowerPoint® presentations with notes, handouts, a Leader’s Guide, and 4 of my best-selling books to help you celebrate a Day of Faith (or a series of Days) during the summer months of this Year of Faith.

Summer is a wonderful time to invite people to leisurely faith formation, perhaps even in a picnic setting. Let Days of Faith help you grow in faith during these summer months.

  1. Joe,
    Any chance of getting this without the four books? We already own them 🙂 and would love to save the cost of additional copies.

    Thanks so much for all you do!


    • Hi Terry. The books are basically included as free samples…the cost covers the development and content of the CD/PowerPoint presentations and intellectual property.
