AOC's Festival of Faith Draws Thousands of Participants
Thousands of Catholics from parishes across the Chicago area streamed into Rosemont on Saturday to celebrate their faith, share information and get some inspiration -- in English, Spanish and Polish.
"People are isolated in their parishes at times," said Cardinal Francis George. "The people have come in, and in greater numbers than last time. They feel very encouraged."
More than 6,500 people, from toddlers to senior citizens, attended the second Catholic Festival of Faith Thursday through Saturday at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center.
