Seasons of Faith: A Walk through the History of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Marquette 1900-2000 is a 360-page, hardcover book that documents the ways in which the Word of God has been proclaimed in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan over the past 100 years.

This contemporary compilation is fully illustrated and includes a sketch of the development of the diocese, brief biographies of its 12 bishops and religious orders and an index of the more than 800 priests who have served the region. Seasons of Faith tells of the founding and development of every parish and mission, lists all of their pastors and some of the unique qualities of parish life. The history of ecclesial lay movements, Catholic high schools, hospitals, orphanages, retreat centers and other ministries in the diocese is also included in this work.

Seasons of Faith is a sesquicentennial souvenir that every Catholic will turn to again and again to reflect upon the church’s past struggles and accomplishments and to continue to be encouraged to increase the faith for future generations.
