Exploring the key topics of Catholic Social Teaching
Catholic Social Teaching: Fundamentals of our Faith
3rd Thursday of the Month
Mornings at 10:00 A.M. (St. Joseph Center - Brisson Room)
Evenings at 7:00 P.M. (School Library)
Join Fr. Dolan and your fellow parishioners for monthly explorations into the fundamental principles of our Catholic faith. Discuss ways we can help in building a just society as we seek to live lives of holiness amidst the challenges of the modern world. Each third Thursday from October through May those gathered will investigate one of the key themes at the heart of our Catholic tradition, reflect on their meaning in today's society, and explore their implications for our lives. Come learn more about what is at the heart of Catholic teaching as we discuss the full meaning of our Church's guidance on our call to community, individual rights and responsibilities, dignity of the human person, opting for the poor, dignity of work, solidarity, and care for God's creation.
Each session will last approximately 90 minutes and will require no previous reading. Each topic can stand on it's own, but it is hoped you will consider committing to the entire series.
