seven deadly sins/seven lively virtues
Wednesdays @ 10Am (August 23rd - October 11th)
Join Bishop Robert Barron for this engaging presentation concerning the seven deadly sins, those great spiritual blocks that inhibit our flourishing in relationship with God and one another. Based on Dante’s writings, the seven deadly sins correspond to the seven levels of Dante’s Mt. Purgatory. Pride, envy, anger, sloth, gluttony, avarice, and lust are all presented as patterns of dysfunction within us that lead to unhappiness.
However, Bishop Barron shows us how to counteract these seven sinful patterns through a conscious process of opposition, which are the “seven lively virtues." The seven lively virtues offer antidotes to each sin and help set us on the right path to healing and happiness.

come & See
Wednesdays @ 6pm (August 23rd - September 27th)
This event is not a program, nor is it a teaching or preaching exercise. It is a beautiful 90-minute presentation with the intent of providing an experience. The presentation includes; an inviting video message from Bishop Cary and an extended excerpt from Fr. Barron’s “Catholicism” DVD series. It will conclude with a friendly invitation to participate in a 6-week follow-up series where individuals are afforded the opportunity to learn more about the Church, have an opportunity to ask questions and receive authentic answers. Go and invite your neighbors, friends, relatives, and coworkers to “Come & See” on August 18th @ 5:30PM!
We would like to invite you to a special 6-week program which will explore the richness and depth of our Catholic faith! This program will provide you with an opportunity to not only learn more about Catholicism, but also to have time for asking heartfelt questions and receiving sincere answers. This class is intended for anyone who is either an inquiring non-Catholic, a Catholic who has not been regularly attending Mass, or anyone wishing to re-engage with the faith altogether. All are welcome! This class is held every Wednesday @ 6pm from August 23rd - September 27th.

Weekly Study of the Summa
Fridays @ 6pm (August 25th - Ongoing)
This study group will delve right into Aquinas' famous 3,500 page Summa Theologiae (Summary of Theology). For those unfamiliar with it, the Summa is a perhaps the most systematic and thorough layout of Catholic doctrine that the world has ever seen. It is also one of the most influential works ever written which has aided the Church in explaining and even forming key doctrines. Here is a quote from St. John Paul II about Aquinas in his encyclical Fides et Ratio:
“Saint Thomas is an authentic model for all who seek the truth. In his thinking, the demands of reason and the power of faith found the most elevated synthesis ever attained by human thought, for he could defend the radical newness introduced by Revelation without ever demeaning the venture proper to reason.”
In this weekly study, we will eventually cover nearly every aspect of theology you could imagine. Perhaps most famous in the Summa is Aquinas' "Five Ways" or proofs for God's existence. We will go over these in detail as well! So if you are particularly interested in studying a deeper level of Catholic theology, please join us!
