You can now learn more about the Catholic faith by simply sitting at your computer. Watch and listen to these talks in one sitting, or over several days (or weeks!) as you find time. You can watch a talk alone, or with your spouse or family members. You could use these talks (or parts of them) as starters for CWL or Knights of Columbus meetings, for RCIA sessions, or for any other parish-based adult faith formation.
We offer you three series of archived webcasts.
Learn about the Mass (six sessions; each in two parts of about 30 min. each)
Why does Vatican II matter to us today, 50 years later? (seven sessions; each in three parts of 20 min. each)
The Nicene Creed: the Summary of What Catholics Believe (seven sessions; each in three parts of 20 min. each)
Each session also offers reflection questions for you to use alone or in a group.
