Tuesdays from 9:30-11:30am beginning September 11
“Christian, recognize your dignity…” It is with this noble exhortation that the Catechism of the Catholic Church introduces its third section entitled Life in Christ. This 15 week intensive study of the Catechism of the Church’s moral teachings will shed light on what it is to live a life “worthy of the Gospel of Christ.” Presented in the context of the Ten Commandments and the Beatitudes, the teachings are rooted in the dignity of each human person based upon his or her creation in the image and likeness of God and the vocation of each human being to true happiness. The theme of God’s mercy to sinners runs throughout this portion of the Catechism.
Sessions will include videotaped lectures, workbooks with explanatory text and questions for at-home preparation, as well as supplemental readings. Program materials include the
encyclical Veritatis Splendor (which can be purchased in booklet format ($8) or downloaded and printed from the internet, the Catechism of the Catholic Church ($12), and the book, Where Did I Come From; Where Am I Going; How Do I Get There? by late University of Notre Dame Law School Professor Charles Rice ($13). Register by September 1.
