Mass at 7:30 PM
Why we Believe video series with Dr. Brant Pitre
This series will be held in the undercroft at 6:40-7:45 PM
Attention Parents of Faith Formation Children here is an opportunity for you to set an example for your children that you too are learning and growing in your Faith! Susan Anderson will also walk your children over to the undercroft after class so no worry to pick them up, they will come to you.
Is Catholicism true? Or is it just made up? How can I explain the faith to my family or friends who no longer believe?
In this mind-blowing series, Dr. Brant Pitre takes up the most commonly asked questions about the Catholic faith and provides clear and compelling biblical answers. He begins at the beginning--with the existence of God--and walks you step-by-step through the foundations of the faith. Along the way, Dr. Pitre explains:
Oct 23, 2018: Peter and the Papacy? Did Jesus establish the Catholic Church? What is the historical evidence?
Oct 30, 2018: Purgatory and Prayers for the Dead? Where is Purgatory in the Bible? Why do Catholics pray for the dead?
Nov 20, 2018: How Did We Get the Bible? From where did the Bible come? Who decided which books got in and which didn't?
Nov 27, 2018: Do Catholics Worship Mary? What does the Bible teach about her?
If you've ever been asked any of these questions but weren't quite sure how to answer -- or if you know someone who has left the Church and no longer believes, then buckle up: this Bible study is for you. In it, you'll discover how just reasonable, biblical, and beautiful the Catholic faith really is.
