Wednesdays at the Cathedral will feature the New Bishop Robert Barron series

 

catholic-pivotal-playersWednesdays at the Cathedral will begin the highly acclaimed new series from Bishop Robert Barron, perhaps best known for his Word on Fire website and book. The video series focuses on the Key Pivotal Players in our Catholic Faith.

January 11 we will start with St. Francis of Assisi

From Bishop Robert Barron’s Website

The Reformer

Rebuild my Church! That’s the mission Christ gave to St. Francis and it’s the perennial task of the Church in every age of its life. But how is the reform and renewal of the Church to be accomplished? The life of St. Francis demonstrates that Christ intends the foundations of true and lasting reform to be built on the solid rock that is the radical witness of the saints

January 18 we will learn about St. Thomas Aquinas

The Theologian

The relationship of faith and reason is under intense scrutiny in an age beholden to the competing claims of fundamentalism and secularism. So called “new atheists” insist that the claims of religion amount to mere superstition, a retrograde holdover from a time long ago. Others insist that the life of faith is a retreat into emotions and subjectivism. St. Thomas Aquinas anticipated these objections and trends and demonstrated that to believe is to think and that the life of the mind is integral to life in Christ.

January 25

We finish the month with St. Catherine Siena

The Mystic

Is the physical world all there is? Is science the only path to ascertaining truth? St. Catherine of Siena witnesses to a higher world beyond the material. Though the fourteenth century mystic never studied theology, and never learned how to read or write, her life constitutes a powerful challenge to the flattened-out secularism of our time.

Our Wednesdays at the Cathedral would not be complete without RCIA and our Family Faith Formation Program.

We offer an affordable dinner at 5:30 p.m. and classes and programs for everyone start at 6:30 p.m. family-faith-formation
