Do you want to know more about your faith? Are there things about your faith that you don’t understand? What is it that makes Catholics catholic? Who are we, really?
Father Les will be presenting a 10 part DVD series titled “Journey Around the World and Deep into the Faith”. The series presents, “in breathtaking, high definition cinematography, the beauty and truth of the Catholic Faith…”. The series invites us to “Journey with acclaimed author, speaker, and theologian Father Robert Barron to more than 50 locations throughout 15 countries” and to “Be illuminated by the spiritual and artistic treasures of this global culture that claims more than one billion of the earth’s people”. Please check the bulletin and website should there be changes to the scheduled Tuesdays.
A complete list and description of all 10 episodes is on our parish website and on the bulletin board at the church. After each part is shown (50 minutes – 1 hour), Father Les will take any questions you might have about what you have just seen and about our Catholic Faith generally.
We encourage as many of you as possible to attend these sessions and learn more about our Religion.
PLEASE CHECK BULLETIN AND LISTEN FOR ANNOUNCEMENTS OF SCHEDULED TIMES. DUE TO PRIOR COMMITMENTS, SOME TUESDAYS MAY BE CANCELLED.
