Current Sessions

Jesus: Messianic King
Sundays 9:35-10:20 a.m.
Zimmerman Conference Room

Matthew's gospel presents Jesus as Israel's royal Messiah inaugurating God's kingdom in the world.  It was written to help Jewish Christians understand that their faith in Jesus was entirely consistent with the faith of ancient Israel.  With frequent quotations and allusions from the Old Testament, Matthew demonstrates how Jesus is both Son of David and Son of God.  This study aims to help participants understand the scope of the gospel, the clear advice it offers for the church, and its personal implications for the lives of disciples today.  Sessions are held between Sunday morning Masses, except on K of C Breakfast weekends.  All are welcome!

Sunday Scriptures:
Sundays 9:30-10:15 a.m.

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.

Christian Morality & Social Issues
Presenter:  Bishop John Brungardt

A study of basic Christian beliefs about the origin, destiny, and meaning of the person, the nature of Christian life as the fundamental commitment to follow Christ, and the moral principles that flow from this.  Students will explore the importance of moral "self-determination" through free choices and will explore how appropriate moral choices are made within the Christian faith commitment.  Contemporary moral issues will be studied and analyzed from a Christian perspective.  Sessions are held Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on September 7, 14, 28, October 5, 12, 19, 26, November 9, 16.

Celebrating Diveristy
Presenter:  Fr. Robert Schremmer

Celebrating Diversity is not so much a class or course as a gathering of people seeking a way.  As we dialog, pray, share stories, face fears, explore icebergs, and learn the love, compassion, and charity that unify, we seek a way for the many members of the Body of Christ to make God's work on earth tangible and real.  We will view diversity through the Scriptural lens of unity of the human family, Body of Christ, catholicity of the mission, and its church.  Christian communities can face challenges applying these truths.  While most sessions will be held over ITV, the final session will be held in person at St. Andrew's in Wright with a meal provided.  All sessions are bilingual.  Sessions are held Wednesdays from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on September 18, 25, October 30, November 17.

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.
