Apologetics 101

Wednesdays from 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
September 15 - November 17, 2021

“Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone
who asks you for a reason for your hope.” - 1 Peter 3:15

Have you ever been asked questions like these?  Did you know how to respond?

  • Why do you pray to Mary and the Saints instead of just to God?
  • How do we know which books should be in the Bible?
  • The  Bible says call no man “father,” so why do we call priests father?

Equip yourself to live out your baptismal calling.  Join us for this 10-part series in which you will learn the Catholic answers to common questions about the Catholic faith and how to engage non-believers in effective dialogue about the truth.
