    Ever wish you knew more about your Catholic faith? Then this is for you!

    Many of us know our Catholic faith but don’t really feel like we KNOW it, or understand it well enough to speak easily with others about it. Catholicism 101 will be an opportunity to learn more about our faith. It is designed for people who feel that they wish they knew their faith better, or for people who may have been away from theChurch for a while, and also people who are not Catholic but would like to learn about the Catholic faith. A variety of topics will be offered, most for 2-3 sessions. Content is based on the Adult Catechism. 

    Topics include The Creed, Prayer, Christian Morality, Sacraments I, Sacraments II, Devotions, Saints & Sacramentals, and All Things Catholic.  

  • Genesis to Jesus

    Mondays 6 pm

    Want to have a Better Understanding of how the Hebrew Scriptures–Old Testament books–relate to Jesus?

    Genesis to Jesus opens the door to a deeper understanding of Scripture, especially for those who find reading the Bible a daunting task. You’ll see the big picture of salvation history, the single plot that runs through the books of the Bible. This study of Scripture will help you to see how various Bible stories fit together in God's plan.
