Series

Apologetics: The Catholic Church Through the Ages

with Fr. Junot Nelvy
Thursdays, 10:00-11:30 a.m., Adult Ed/OCI Room
June 1, 8 and 29

Curious about how or why the Catholic Church has developed as it has? Join Fr. Junot for a fascinating apologetics class tracing the Church’s evolution from Pentecost through modern times. Using history, logic and other evidence, we’ll deepen our understanding of how we’ve arrived where we are today as a larger community of faith and strengthen our ability to explain our beliefs to those around us.

Fr. Junot will cover two topics during each of the three classes in this series. Though attending all three classes will offer the greatest benefit for understanding the Church’s development, all are welcome even if for just one or two sessions.

  • June 1: From Pentecost (the age of the Kerygma) AND Early Church Through the Roman Empire
  • June 8: The Rise of Islam AND The Great Schism
  • June 29: Reformation and the Renaissance AND Council of Trent through Modern Times

presented by Women in Faith

Fridays, 9:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m., Adult Ed/OCI Room

With simple, down-to-earth language, Rolheiser illustrates the importance of prayer and offers techniques for how to pray, using examples from daily life, Scripture, and contemporary writers. He delves into the places that we fear to go with our issues about prayer, encouraging us with gentle kindness and words of hope and inspiration. This is a book for all manner of believers, whether your faith is solidly rooted, wavering between childhood religion and adult faith, or just not sure what you believe—or whether you believe at all.

Series

Christianity & World Religions: A Comparative Study

with Fr. Brian Bufford
Mondays, 10:00-11:30 a.m., Adult Lounge
June 5, 12

Ever wondered how Christianity and other world religions compare? What do we hold in common and where do we differ? We, as Christians, proclaim Christ to be the Way, the Truth, and the Life. How do we maintain belief in the uniqueness of Christianity’s proposition while still respecting the beliefs of other world religions and protecting the dignity of those who practice them?

Though attending all three classes will offer the best comparison, all are welcome even if for just one or two sessions. The classes will cover:

  • May 22: Christian Revelation
  • June 5: Islam
  • June 12: Hinduism & Buddhism
