St. Raphael the Archangel and Most Blessed Sacrament Parishes
As Catholics, we are the inheritors of holy men and women who over two thousand years built a great civilization and spread the gospel throughout the world. The history of the Church is not just the recitation of popes and saints; it is a story of adventure, intrigue, rebellion, reform, and devotion. In this study you will learn about the important people, places, and events in two thousand years of Church history: true stories behind the Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, and the Protestant Reformation as well as the massive persecution of Christians in the twentieth century. Steve Weidenk, opf, presenter, will help you gain an understanding of the workings of the Holy Spirit in our Church in Epic: A Journey Through Church History.
Part 1 of this study will be held on Mondays at 6 pm on the following dates:
September 20, 27
October 5, 19, 26 (No class Oct 12)
The next part of EPIC will be held in the early part of our next calendar year.
To register, please call the parish office.
You can purchase a study set on your own from Ascension Press here.

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 to meet people where they're at, whether they wish they knew their faith better, have been away from the Church for a while, or even 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. All sessions are Tuesday evenings, 6-8 pm.
Topics include The Creed, Prayer, Christian Morality, Sacraments I, Sacraments II, Devotions, Saints & Sacramentals, and All Things Catholic.
Masks not required for fully vaccinated individuals. Come spend time with Jesus in the Eucharist at any time between 3:30 and 5:30 pm for however long you can.

You have received gifts in Baptism and Confirmation through which God intends His love to reach others. Come and discover these charisms in you! This workshop is facilitated by a trained diocesan team. The $50 registration includes all materials, lunch, and refreshments.
