Our Classes

Drawing Family Members Back to the Church

$25

with Margit McCarthy

Calendar Sep 23, 2021 at 6:30 pm, runs for 7 weeks

A seven session exploration based on the popular book, "Return, How to Draw Your Child back to the Church" by Brandon Vogt. You will receive a copy of the book at the first session (at no additional charge).

6.5 people leave the Catholic Church for every one that joins, and 50% of young people who were raised Catholic no longer practice our faith. The Catholic Church is hemorrhaging young people.

Behind these statistics are countless stories of wounded families. Millions of Catholics are longing for their prodigal family members and friends to come home to the Church, crying: "Where did we go wrong?"

The passive wait-and-see approach no longer is an option. We need a different strategy. We need a game plan to bring them home!

This course is being offered in-person only at Holy Apostles on Thursday evenings 6:30-8:00 starting on Sep 23.

The Virtues

$50

with Thomas Ryan

Calendar Sep 28, 2021 at 12:30 pm, runs for 8 weeks

Until modern times, virtue as the essential foundation for civil society was never questioned.

Until modern times, the indivisible link between virtue and the moral life was taken for granted.

Virtue was universally recognized as the means by which man endeavored to imitate Christ.

But starting as a seed during the Enlightenment and becoming a massive, ever-spreading, and rapidly growing weed today is the concept of man's autonomy. Man is the ultimate moral judge of right and wrong. Look what that has done to our 'civil' society!

We are encouraged to abandon our sense of shame, which is an essential and integral part of Temperance. Is it any wonder that modern society holds the libertine perspective that 'anything goes'?

We have become soft and largely unable or unwilling to endure hardship and sacrifice as Fortitude has waned.

And our understanding of Charity has become distorted and corrupted by an emphasis on the secular world such that what passes for charity today often spiritually harms those we seek to help.

Join us for an 8-week course to increase our understanding of the virtues and how they can transform our lives to gain the Peace of Christ; how to develop the virtues within us; and how living the virtues can shape us into a beacon for others as we work to transform our society!

We will cover:

  • What is virtue?
  • What are the cardinal virtues? What are the theological virtues? What are sub-virtues?
  • The gifts accompanying each virtue
  • The sins opposed to each virtue
  • Why developing the virtues within us is absolutely essential for Spiritual Combat
  • How developing the virtues within us is transformative and completely re-orients the way we interact with the modern world
  • Best practices for developing each virtue

This class is offered in-person at the John Henry Newman Center on the UCCS campus following noon Mass on Tuesdays, starting Sep 28.  This class ALSO is offered via Zoom on Thursday evenings. After registration, you can attend either/both sessions. This will be particularly helpful if we encounter early snowstorms that might shut down a Tuesday in-person session.

Salvation History

$35

with Sue Athey

Calendar Sep 29, 2021 at 6:30 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Join us for a 6-week exploration of God's love story with all humanity!  From Creation through King Solomon.

Have you ever wondered...

  • Does Genesis present a scientific explanation of Creation? Do Adam and Eve have belly buttons? What is really happening in the story of Adam and Eve?
  • If the earth was reborn after the flood, how did the sin of Adam and Eve enter Noah's world?
  • How did Abraham live up to God's calling? How did he fall short? And how does the story of Abraham look forward to Christ and the redemption of man?
  • How did the chosen people, the Hebrews, come to be known as the nation of Israel? Why are they later referred to as the Jews?
  • What is the true significance of God telling Moses His name?
  • At Sinai, was Moses the only one God spoke to?
  • Anticipating that the Hebrews would demand a king, what limitations does Moses place on kingly power (how does that apply in today's world)? And which king of Israel violated every one of these limitations?

But most of all, how do the stories presented in Historical Narrative books of the Old Testament show us God's love, God's patience, and God's mercy?

The course is offered on-line only on Wednesday evenings starting Sep 29.
