The 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) is a historic moment of grace. Join us in celebrating “the greatest religious event of the 20th century” (St. John Paul II) with a Festival of Faith in Roma!
From December 5-10, 2015, singers and pilgrims from around the world will raise their voices in praise to God by experiencing Papal Audience with the Holy Father, Mass participation at the Basilica di San Pietro in Vaticano, and a Gala Concert in the Basilica di Santa Maria sopra Minerva, all in commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of Vatican II.
The Festival of Faith chorus will sing under the inspired baton of Monsignor Pablo Colino, Emeritus Director of Music at Saint Peter’s Basilica, and will feature mixed-voice singers and choirs joining together in song for this momentous occasion.
Under the skilled production of Faith Journeys and Music Celebrations International, the Festival of Faith will be a once-in-a-lifetime festival and pilgrimage bound to lift the hearts and voices of all participants in great joy and devotion!
