"I am not a Catholic by accident or by culture or by inertia: I am a Catholic by conviction. I believe that contained within the very act of faith in Jesus is the Church, and that it is impossible to have Jesus, in individual isolation, without the Church."
- Ralph Martin
Then they said to each other, "Were not our hearts burning (within us) while he spoke to us on the way and opened the scriptures to us?"Luke 24:32

The Faith Enrichment study group meets every Sunday morning at 8:30 am in the conference room.
An 11 week study is currently being studied entitled The Bible and the Sacraments.
What are the sacraments? Why do we do what we do in the confessional or at Mass? What's the point of baptizing a baby?
While Catholics know the sacraments are important, many never grasp how life-changing these "masterworks of God" really are. Now they can. The Bible and the Sacraments unveil the mystery of the sacraments and their foundation in Sacred Scripture.
Join author, speaker, and St. Paul Center Executive Director, Matthew Leonard, in this stunning, awe-inspiring series, in which the power of the sacraments come alive in a personal, new way. All in all, you will experience the sacraments as you've never experienced them before!
The Bible and the Sacraments is part of the St. Paul Center for Theology's dynamic Journey Through Scripture Bible study series. It is based upon Dr. Scott Hahn's bestselling book, Swear to God.

What is Donuts and Doctrine you ask?
