Current Sessions

The Mass
Sundays 9:35-10:20 a.m.
Zimmerman Conference Room

Walk through the Liturgy with Bishop Robert Barron and you'll be transformed through insights on this most privileged and intimate encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ.  See how the Mass brings us out of the fallen world and into the heavenly realm, how it resonates with a call from God and a response from his people (the Church), and most importantly, how we are intimately joined with the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus through the Holy Eucharist.  The Mass will help you understand how to fully, consciously, and actively participate in the source and summit of the Christian life.  This series will feature video presentations, workbook questions, and discussion.  Sessions are held between Sunday morning Masses, except on K of C Breakfast weekends.  All are welcome!

US Catholic Catechism for Adults
Mondays 9:30-11 a.m.
Zimmerman Conference Room

The presence of the Catholic Church in the United States reaches back to the founding days of our country through the leadership of Archbishop John Carroll, the first Catholic bishop in the United States.  His story, like other stories at the start of the chapters in the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults, gives us a glimpse into the lives of Catholics who lived out their faith throughout our country's history.  Each chapter in the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults includes stories, doctrine, reflections, quotations, discussion questions, and prayers to lead the reader to a deepening faith.  We will have DVD presentations, questions for discussion, and group sharing.  Please join us on Mondays in the Zimmerman Conference Room.   Breaks from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Introduction to New Testament

The Why of Ministry
Presenter:  Gentry Heimerman

From Joseph, to Timothy, to Esther (who won a beauty contest, then saved a nation), God engaged young people in big ways to do even bigger things.  Approaching Youth Ministry as a missionary disciple leads one to both the "whys" and the "hows" of youth ministry.  This course is needed to obtain the Diocesan Certification in Youth Ministry.  Sessions are held Wednesdays from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on January 23, February 20, March 20, April 10.

RCIA Kansas
Presenter:  Fr. Tim Piasecki & Fr. Robert Schremmer

The rites of the process of Christian Initiation of Adults are studied form historical, theological, liturgical, and pastoral perspectives.  Students reflect on the order and integrity of each of the rites.  Working from this foundation, they explore appropriate ritual adaptation and receive guidance for the adapting and enrichment of the rites.  This course is needed to obtain the Diocesan Certification in Youth Ministry.  The workshop is held at the Heartland Center for Spirituality in Great Bend on March 22-23.
