Catholic Faith Topics is a ministry designed to educate on various topics relating to the Catholic faith. The intent is to benefit the attendee’s own spiritual formation and to empower the attendee to explain and defend the teaching of the Catholic faith. After a presentation on the selected topic, the facilitator answers questions and moderates a discussion. Sample topics include: the Papacy, Papal Infallibility, the Holy Mass, Confession, Sacramentals, Religion, and Politics, Salvation and Last Things, and other topics of interest. Each topic is different, registration is not required, and there is no homework. For a minimal time investment, the attendee can maximize the return by learning more about the Catholic Faith. Childcare is available.
