THE CATHOLIC FAITH AS YOU'VE NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE!
Beginning on Wednesday, October 29th, our parish will be hosting a DVD presentation, Catholicism, a 10-week video program illustrating the truth, goodness and beauty of our faith in a multimedia experience. Journey with Fr. Robert Barron to more than 50 locations throughout 16 countries! From the sacred lands of Israel to the beating heart of Uganda, from the glorious shrines of Europe to the streets of Mexico and New York City, the mysteries of Catholicism are revealed. This is not a lecture, history or scripture study. Rather, this program uses the art, architecture, literature, music and all the treasures of the Catholic tradition to illuminate God's revelation through Jesus Christ and His Church. Come to understand more fully what we Catholics believe and why! Discover the full and deeper meaning of your Faith! The presentation will take place on Wednesdays at 6:30pm in Tetu Hall. For more information, call the rectory at 625-6409.
