Part of the Year of Faith is emphasizing how culture, art and music can inspire and become tools for the New Evangelization. As part of this, the Vatican has organized several exhibits, one of them is in Castel Sant' Angelo.

In addition to all the pilgrimages and exhibits on religious art, the Year of Faith is also about reflecting on the Sacraments. On April 28th, 40 youths from around the world, will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation from the Pope himself.
