Catholic Focus: The Journey of a Cross

May 8, 2012
Almost ten years after World Youth Day Toronto, the students of Neil McNeil Catholic Secondary School have built their own travelling cross.  Known as the “Witness to Faith Cross,” it is journeying to all the schools in the Toronto Catholic District School board during the 2011-2012 academic year.  A public affirmation of faith in and around Canada’s largest city, and part of an ongoing pastoral plan, the Witness to Faith Cross is the symbol of a renewed Catholicity in Toronto’s Catholic Schools.  The Board hopes that by bearing witness through the cross, young Catholics will come to a fuller understanding of the role of faith in their lives and in the life of our society as a whole.  Join host Sebastian Gomes as he brings you the story behind the travelling cross and highlights the importance of witnessing to faith in Ontario’s Catholic schools today.
