FAITH FINDING UNDERSTANDING

Tuesdays, 7:00 - 9:00 pm, St. Joseph Center, 209

Deacon Peter Trahan presents a series of topics to help you come to a deeper understanding of our faith. Our faith does not have to be a blind faith, but rather it is a reasonable faith that makes sense once the underlying truths are understood. Classes begin September 4, 2018 and continue through May 28, 2019. We recommend bringing a New American Bible, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and a notebook. For more details, please contact Dcn. Peter Trahan at ptrahan@pophouston.org, or 954-465-1282.

FULFILLED: UNCOVERING THE BIBLICAL FOUNDATIONS OF CATHOLICISM

Mondays, 5:00 pm, St. Joseph Center, 213

Have you ever been unable to explain the “why” of Catholic beliefs? Have you ever wondered why the Old Testament sounds so different from the New Testament? In the Old Testament, God began building a plan and laying a foundation for the beautiful traditions of the Catholic Faith. That plan was fulfilled by Jesus in the New Testament. Fulfilled: Uncovering the Biblical Foundations of Catholicism is an apologetic approach to sharing the Catholic Faith using the Old Testament Tabernacle as a blueprint for God’s plan. Cost is $25 for book and study materials.

CATHOLIC WAY BIBLE STUDY: THE BOOK OF REVELATION

The Book or Revelation is one of the most misunderstood books of the Bible.  The paradox of Jesus as Lord of History and the Lamb that was slain; the letters to the Seven Churches; the seals, trumpets and bowl judgements; the Father's great love and His chastisement; the Woman; the Beast; and the host of heaven; these concepts found their fulfillment in John's own time, but also are fulfilled in our time and look to the End for final realization.  Maranatha!
