A wise priest once said, "Don't let others define your faith. It's your faith, you should be the one telling them about it."
The Year of Faith has commenced. Have you done something to celebrate this special year of our Church? Well, if you're still searching for a way to dive deeper into learning more about your faith ... try one or all of these sessions.
The Carmel Deanery, a group of surrounding parishes, have come together to bring parishioners an exciting speaker series on the Documents of Vatican II. Many Catholics have heard of Vatican II, but might not realize what exactly the council did for the Church or when it actually even happened.
This special series, presented by the distinguished professor Dr. John Nichols, will reveal some of the awesome facts about Church teaching that they didn't quite get to in CCD classes growing up.
Who is the speaker? Dr. Nichols is an amazing presenter who has become well versed on these topics. He is currently a professor at St. Joseph College in Rensselaer, Ind. He has degrees from STL Catholic University of Fribourg and Catholic University of Louvain.
Do you have to attend all sessions? You can attend one, or as many as you'd like.
The dates, locations and topics are listed below. All sessions are from 7 - 8:30 p.m.
Is there a registration? No need to RSVP, your seat is already awaiting you.
Is there a cost? No fee or requirement ... but it'd be great if you could invite a friend!
