Walk through the Liturgy with Bishop Barron and you'll be transformed through the insights on this most privileged and intimate encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ.

See how the Mass brings us out of the fallen world and into the heavenly realm, how it resonates with a call from God and a response from his people, the Church, and most importantly, how we are intimately joined with the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus through the Holy Eucharist.

Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom

by Jeff Cavins and Sarah Christmyer

Step Three in The Great Adventure Bible Study Program, Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom, builds on The Bible Timeline and Matthew by showing how Christ's Kingdom on earth is empowered to carry out his work in the world. The book of Acts shows the Church, enlivened by the Holy Spirit, teaching, preaching, healing, and restoring outcasts in the same way that Jesus did on earth.

The Acts of the Apostles provides an historic framework for understanding the rest of the New Testament. Paul’s letters in particular come alive in a new way when

they are read within the context of the Acts narrative.

We Will:

  • See how the Gospel witness spread outward in waves, from Jerusalem to Judea and Samaria, and finally to the ends of the earth.
  • Share with the early Christians the joys and struggles of living the life of Christ, and learn how these apply to us today.
  • See how the Holy Spirit guided the apostles into Truth.
  • Observe the way the Spirit-filled Church adapted to new cultures when proclaiming the Gospel.
  • Watch the seeds of Church structure and authority take root, and see how conflicts were resolved even at that early stage.
  • See your place in Christ’s Church, and how you should live day-to-day as a disciple of Christ.

There are no pass/fail exams in this course.   However, there are assignments, for example, reading parts of the Bible. As is the case with our faith, the more we put into these courses, the better fruit will they bear.

When:  Tuesdays: 6:30 – 8:30 PM, beginning September 25th, in Hagus Hall

Please call the Parish Office to sign up for this course, so that we know the number of workbooks we need to order.
