Sanctuary Course for Catholics

One in four people will be affected by a mental health problem at some point in their lives, yet the stigma surrounding mental illness silences many and prevents faith communities from responding compassionately and effectively. This eight-session course-designed for use in small groups-explores the realities of mental health and illness, as well as the vital need for faith-based community conversations about these topics. The sessions are accompanied by compelling films that feature the stories of Catholics living with mental health challenges, along with the insights of archbishops, theologians, and psychologists.

Introduction to the Catechism

Come learn how the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) is organized and how EASY it is to use. Learn not only what the Catholic Church teaches, but also connect that teaching with scripture and the writings of the earliest Christians. We will briefly cover:

  • divine revelation and how we got the bible
  • how to tell if something is morally good (or not)
  • sacraments
  • the seven petitions in the Our Father

Please bring your own bible and catechism so you can follow along and make notes!
