David LinsCatholic Thoughts

What stops us from sharing our Catholic Faith (more often)?

06-25-2017David Lins

What stops us from sharing our Catholic Faith (more often)? There are four likely suspects: lack of knowledge, lack of integrity, lack of belief, or lack of courage.

Many of us feel as though we don’t know enough. If we begin a conversation, we might get tied up in knots by someone who has studied their faith more than we have studied Catholicism.

The remedy is to attend our Faith Formation programming. Catholicism 101 is almost every Sunday at 9:00am (tucked conveniently between the 7:30am and 11:00am Masses so you could go to either) in the Teen Center (for the duration of church construction). You can also access our parish Formed.org account. Go to www.formed.org , click on register, enter parish code 7Y2GH8 and set up a free personal account.
