The fourth and final year of Why Catholic?, a program that helps adults explore the richness of the Catholic faith, is scheduled to begin Oct. 1.
This year’s theme is “Life in Christ: Walking with God,” which will look at biblical justice and present the principles of Catholic social teaching. The first six-week session will center on the Beatitudes, as well as freedom, responsibilities, conscience, virtues, moral law, sin, mercy, grace and the Church. The second sessions, scheduled to take place during Lent in 2014, will focus on the implications of the Ten Commandments.
Why Catholic? programs are offered in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese. A list of participating parishes and missions in the Diocese of Orlando may be found below. Contact your parish to register for the Why Catholic? program.
Why Catholic? was developed by Renew International and provides participants in-depth information and insight into core beliefs, the sacraments, morality and prayer. More than 1,300 parishes across the U.S. have implement the Why Catholic? program.
