Beginning this Sunday, January 26, parents of religious education students and any other interested adults will have the opportunity to join in with a group that will be viewing Father Robert Barron’s “Catholicism” series on ten consecutive Sundays. Father Barron created this groundbreaking program as a thematic presentation of what Catholics believe and why, so that adults can come to a deeper understanding of the Catholic faith. Not a video lecture, Church history or scripture study, this engaging and interesting formational program uses the art, architecture, literature, music and all the treasures of the Catholic tradition to illuminate the timeless teachings of the Church. These sessions will meet in the Golden Arrow Center each Sunday from 11:25 until 12:25. No registration is necessary, but space is limited. Please contact the rectory if you have any questions.
