Apologetics 101

Ben Perrin

September 8th- Library September 15th- Library September 22th- Library September 29th- Library

Do you dread the knock of door-to-door evangelizers? Do you get tongue-tied when a non- Catholic asks, "Why do you Catholics believe ...?" Then this class is for you. It will give you the knowledge and confidence to defend your faith. Participants will discover how easy it is to show the biblical basis for the most commonly misunderstood Catholic beliefs, including the Eucharist, the Papacy, Mary, Purgatory, Confession, and prayer to the saints. Clear, concise, and very practical.

Exploring our Catholic Liturgy

Chris O’Neill



Most of us have been going to mass all our lives and we're familiar with the prayers and responses - when to sit, kneel, and stand. For many of us the mass has become routine and maybe even boring. This class takes a closer look at the Mass. We'll learn about the theology of the liturgy, study the liturgical texts together and learn about other Catholic liturgical expressions like the Liturgies of the Eastern Rites and the pre-Vatican II Tridentine Mass in Latin. Come explore our rich Catholic heritage of liturgical worship. Going to Mass every Sunday won't be the same!

Wayne Vedeckis

This course is based upon the book, The Armchair Mystic, written by Mark Thibodeaux, SJ. The style is light, engaging, and sometimes whimsical. The maturation of a person in levels of prayer is described as: 1) “talking at” God, 2) “talking with” God, 3) “listening to” God, and 4) “being with” God. Included are discussions of formula prayers, spontaneous prayer, meditation, contemplation, Lectio Divina, and how to "pray without ceasing" (1 Thes 5:17). Also included are suggestions on how to improve one’s prayer life by eliminating obstacles and distractions that inhibit effective prayer.
