The Catechism (continued)…

The book contains the fundamental contents of

Catholic doctrine in regards to both faith and morals using as its principle sources—Sacred Scriptures, The Fathers of the Church, the liturgy and the Church’s Magisterium.

The structure of the catechism is built on four pillars: The profession of faith (the Creed), the sacraments, the life of faith (the Commandments) and the prayer of the believers (the Lord’s Prayer)

This week in the RCIA classes, Doug Ralston will
cover “The Creation Story” and “ Fr. Mike will do a presentation on “Our Lady of Guadalupe”

Please pray for our catechumen and candidates—Golie Ebrahimian and her husband Brian Rentfro,
Sam Meadors, Heather Strahan, Philip Blount, Robert Martinez, David Jackson and Jason Spellings.
