Life gets busy – so when you can’t make it to a bible study or class on our campus you can now tune in on the go at your convenience. Listen in the car, in flight, or while you work.
Christ gave us the gift of the radical newness of life through his grace. How to live that life amid a post-Christian culture is the subject of a brand new course: The New Way. Brian Jones, Coordinator of Liturgy, will be leading this weekly course. He will walk us through the timeless wisdom of the Church in both founding principles of Christian Life and applying it to the hot topics of our day. Starting January 10, 2019.
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. Inclusion connects people who are inquiring about Christ and His Catholic Church. 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.
In this age of relentless activity it is easy for Christians, particularly those involved in good works, to fall into the pattern of the activist. But mere activity and material results are not sufficient for a successful apostolate. In his classic work The Soul of the Apostolate, Dom Chautard demonstrates that the very foundation of all apostolic work must be the Interior Life. The apostle of Christ will grow to become an instrument and true channel of God’s graces to the world only through prayer, meditation and the cultivation of the Interior Life. When one is involved in works of spiritual or corporal charity, his work can only be truly efficacious when he anchors his Interior Life in Christ. Without Christ we can do nothing. Michael Gormley leads a five part book review of “The Soul of the Apostolate” for the parish staff.
Kerygma is a Greek word used in the New Testament for “preaching” (see Luke 4:18-19, Romans 10:14, Matthew 3:1). It is related to the Greek verb κηρύσσω kērússō, literally meaning “to cry or proclaim as a herald” and being used in the sense of “to proclaim, announce, preach.” Merriam-Webster defines it as “the apostolic proclamation of salvation through Jesus Christ.” Amongst biblical scholars, the term has come to mean the core of the early church’s oral tradition about Jesus.
