A website to check out would be www.flocknote.com/catechism for a daily reading from the Catechism. This is the Year of Faith and our Pope is encouraging us to increase our understanding of the Church. Great way to help you digest this document in easy-to-read bytes. Check it out!
Another resource is thecatholicyearoffaith.com. It is from Ascension Press and provides some short inspirational reading.
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: We will not meet in the month of June. Sessions will resume on July 7.) Please contact Wayne Talbot (
The Catholic Epistles: Mondays from 9:30 a.m.-11:00 a.m. The writings of James, Peter, Jude, etc. are an interesting look at the thought of the early Church. These seven catholic epistles are a rich source of understanding and spirituality. Please join us for this Little Rock Bible Study series. It features commentary, video presentation, and discussion questions. (We will continue this study in September. No Monday morning sessions during the summer.)
RCIA is for any adult discerning a call to join the Church or just learn more about their faith. We are tentatively scheduled to begin September 15. Please check out the RCIA link on the adult education page for more information or how to be a team member.
We are in the Year of Faith. 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.
