Start Here Series

 

The last time most Catholics studied their faith was when they were children, so while our careers, experiences, intellect, and relationships all matured, our faith didn’t. The “Start Here Series” is an introduction to Christianity where we explore major topics in three short weeks. It’s simple, clear, and always open to your questions. For information on the next Start Here Series, contact Michael Gormley.

Church History

 

This year’s Church History offering is a study of the Early Modern Era. It will begin with the Counter Reformation/Baroque Period (1500’s/1600’s), in the wake of the Renaissance and Protestant Reformation (Revolution!) and continue up through where we are today. It will be a year in which we actively trace the path of the Evil One (Satan), to discover what he has been up to for the past 2000 years, and how it has created the problems in society and in the Church that plague us today.

Inclusion

Inclusion is for baptized non-Catholics who identify themselves as followers or disciples of Jesus Christ, and have done so as adult Christians. If you were raised and baptized in a Christian community and you desire the fullness of the Catholic Church, then Inclusion is for you. Through our evening sessions , we walk the path of Christian discipleship, learning what it means to be a committed follower of Jesus Christ. Inclusion connects people who are inquiring about Christ and His Catholic Church. We follow a friendly small group model. No question or objection is off limits because we want you to be free to explore your own faith as well as the gospel in a non-argumentative, casual environment. Inclusion lasts for 10 Tuesday evening sessions. Each session is 75 minutes long and is broken up into a teaching component and discussion components, giving you plenty of time to voice your viewpoint and get your questions answered.

Who Should Join Inclusion? All Those who…
  • were already validly baptized and raised in a Christian community
  • do not have any marriage impediments (see here for clarification)
  • wish to enter the fullness of the Catholic Church through the Sacraments
  • are growing in their personal relationship with Jesus Christ

 

What if I haven’t been baptized, or been in a Church in years?

If you have not been baptized, or you were baptized as a child but never grew up in a Christian setting or family, then you should head over to our Baptism for Adults page. Inclusion is a heavily modified and tailored version of the RCIA for baptized candidates.
