The Journey: Trinity, Faith & the God Who Is Love
The Bible reveals the mystery of who God is: God is love. God created us out of love, died for us out of love, and invites us on a journey of faith in which we live in his love. In this study, we'll look at the God who is Love and how that Love shows itself in the Trinity and the Faith.
Divine Revelation: God Seeking Us & the Compass of Our Lives
Religion is often perceived as humanity's search for God, but Christianity is more about God's search for us. God "unveils" himself to us and reveals his plan for our lives through "Divine Revelation." But what is this revelation, and how does it impact our lives?
The Bible: God's Love Letter to Humanity
The seventy-three books of the Bible come together to tell the story of God's saving plan. But is it merely an ancient document or collection of fables? Why do Catholics believe it is "inspired"—and what does "inspired" mean? In this session, we'll look at the Bible as an encounter in which the G...
The Story of Salvation: Creation, Fall, & Redemption
Our modern world has lost its story. We don't know from where we came. We don't know why we're here. And we don't know where we're going. In this study we'll see that God wants to draw us into his greater story—one that rescues us from death and leads to an eternal relationship with him.
Who Is Jesus? Just a Good Man or Lord of Our Lives?
Jesus is more than a good teacher or good example. He claimed to be God. And that claim challenges all of us to make an important choice: Will we accept Jesus as who he said he is?
The Paschal Mystery: The Mystery of Jesus' Death & Resurrection
Through Jesus's Death on the Cross, God reveals himself most profoundly as the God who is love. Christ's sacrificial love saves us from sin and shows us the pathway to true human happiness. We are made to live like Christ: in total, self-giving love.
The Holy Spirit and the Life of Grace
One of the most profound aspects of the Catholic Faith is that Christ sent his Spirit to dwell in the hearts of the baptized. But who is the Holy Spirit, and how do we actively invite him to do what he was placed inside of us to do?
Why Do I Need the Church? The Mystery of the Catholic Church
Some people say, "I'm spiritual, but not religious" or "I like Jesus, but don't need a church." In this study, we'll see how one can't fully love the King while rejecting his Kingdom. Yet loving the Church can be a challenge when it is filled with people just like us.
Mary & the Saints: Our Spiritual Mother & the Communion of Saints
Jesus gave his mother Mary to us as our spiritual mother, and she intercedes for us in heaven before her Son. By growing in relationship with Mary—and the rest of the saints—we grow in fellowship with Christ.
The Last Things: What Happens after We Die?
Deep in the human heart is the question: What happens after we die? Jesus reveals the Last Things—death, judgement, Heaven, and Hell—and what we need to do now to prepare for eternity.
