Join us for the free Adult Education Class - Catholicism:  A journey to the Heart of the Faith by Bishop Robert Barron.  This compreensive DVD presentation goes straight to the core of the Catholic faith.  Bishop Barron first examines the foundations of Christ's incarnation, life and ministry, and then works through the essentials of the Catholic tradition:  from sacraments, worship and prayer, to Mary and the saints, and on to salvation, heaven and hell.  Throughout this epic journey, Bishop Barron uses art, literature, personal stories, Scripture, theology, philosophy and history to present a complete picture of the Church to the world.  

Fr. Brian Maxwell and Deacon Doug Hoffman will present the same program at each church on different dates and times for your convenience.

MONDAYS, MARCH 28 - MAY 2, 2022

Born at the Council of Nicaea in the Fourth Century after intense, theological debates, this formal statment of faith is the foundation of both eastern and western Christianity.  All who are baptized profess belief in the statements contained in the Nicene Creed.

In this six part video-based study, Bishop Robert Barron leads us line-by-line through the elegant, intelligent, and succinct words of the Creed.   Words that roll off our tongues easily, but are often not fully understood. These words,such as believe, one God, incarnate, and consubstantial, will resonate in your soul and more deeply give voice to your own faith once you experience Bishop Barron's The Creed.

For your convenience the same program will be presented at both Our Lady of Lourdes & St. Mary Churches
