“Live and die with Him, this is the glorious work of a Christian; in a word, this is our profession. If we do not know it, we must learn it.”

Brother Lawerence

Walking with Purpose

Join us as we explore the core questions that we need to wrestle with if we want to experience all that God has for us. How can I conquer my fears? What is the role of the Holy Spirit in my life? What does the Eucharist have to do with my friendship with Christ? What are the limits of Christ’s forgiveness? Why and how should I pray? What is the role of suffering in my life? What challenges will I face in my efforts to follow Jesus more closely?


Reasonable Doubt

Who: All

What: Over a series of 4 discussions we will be thinking through the reasonable questions that lead honest people to doubt God and his Church. These discussions are a chance to hear from experts, find answers, ask new questions, and lead us to reasonable faith.

When:

SCIENCE (November 16, 2021 @ 7pm) with Patrick Chisholm: Author and Apologist.

Why do we need faith now that science has the tools to address the questions faith used to answer?

MENTAL HEALTH (January 18, 2021 @ 7pm) with Kali Klubertanz: CEO and Clinical Director of Cameron Pediatric Counseling.

Doesn’t God promise joy? Then why am I so consumed by anxiety and depression?

HISTORY (March 15, 2022 @ 7pm) with Steve Weidenkopf: Author and lecturer in Church History – Christendom College.

Why should I trust a Church that has committed terrible atrocities like the Crusades?

SEXUALITY (May 17, 2022 @ 7pm) with Therese Bermpohl: Director of the Office of Marriage, Family and Respect Life, Arlington Diocese.

Love is love – why can’t the Church see that?
