Confession: Five Sentences that Will Change Your Life
Do you run from Confession? If you go to Confession infrequently (e.g. once a year as part of your "Easter duty" or even less frequently than that, maybe only when you commit a "big sin") you probably haven't experienced Confession as an important part of your relationship with God. Many Catholics go to Mass faithfully and try to honor God in how they live, but don't feel the need to go to Confession regularly. Come and learn why confession is so important for your spiritual health.
May 5, with Larry Gottshalk
Introduction to the Old Testament
Larry Gottshalk will be presenting an introduction to the Old Testament. If you’ve ever had questions about the Old Testament this should be a great class for you. Larry will go through where the Old Testament came from; the destruction of the temple and what this meant to Israel; the formation of the Old Testament Canon; the rabbinical period’s writings and some of the differences between how we interpret and the how the Jews interpret the OT.
May 12, with Kristine Mauss
Authentic Love Through the Eyes of God
This talk is designed to give a general understanding of Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body. It will no doubt change hearts and open minds to God's incredible plan for salvation stamped right in our very bodies. We address the meaning of life, what it means to be a man or woman, God's plan for salvation and what our bodies have to do with it, the purpose of married and celibate vocations and what love really is.
