Join us as we seek these blessings by participating in Bishop Robert Barron’s DVD-based program: “Untold Blessing: Three Paths to Holiness.” The first path is “Finding the Center in Christ;” the second is “Knowing You Are a Sinner” and then the third, “Realizing Your Life is Not About You.” There is a workbook as well and we will have discussions around the questions.

It is important that we understand what our faith teaches. Our US Bishops have a couple resources that you can tap for catechesis. The US Catholic Catechism for Adults is a companion to the larger document that was published several years ago. There are several videos you can view on the website. The link is here.
Another important avenue is the emphasis on personal witness. We need to tell others and witness to others what being a Catholic is all about. The Bishops have a document called "Disciples Called to Witness". You can see this right here.
If you are looking to be a part of our church family but feel awkward then talk to Wayne Talbot at
