CATHOLICISM: Not a video lecture or church history or scripture study, this engaging and interesting formational program uses the art, architecture, literature, music, and all the treasures of the Catholic tradition to illuminate the timeless teachings of the church. The CATHOLICISM Study Program presents the strong, ecclesial dimensions of the Catholic Faith—God’s revelation through Jesus Christ and His Church. Participants meet in the Zimmerman Conference Room between the Sunday morning Masses at 9:35 a.m. (NOTE: Sessions continue on most Sundays except when the Knights have breakfast) Please contact Wayne Talbot (

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
. We welcome believers who have been away from the practice of Catholicism. We need you.
