The Catholic Enquiry Group is for non-Catholics who would like to know more about the Catholic faith and/or for those who would like to become Catholic. Catholics who wish to reconnect with their faith after some time away from the Church, or who would like some basic instruction are also welcome.
We will explore the Catholic faith from four main areas:
1. The faith expressed in the Creed
The Creed is a statement of belief which has its origins in the apostles of Jesus and summarises the belief of Catholics such as who God is, who Jesus is, and what Jesus came to do for us and how.
2. The faith celebrated in the Liturgy and Sacraments
Through the Liturgy and Sacraments Jesus continues his work of salvation. For this reason we will look at how the faith is nourished through the sacraments and liturgy of the Church.
3. The faith lived in conformity to Christ
The faith transforms the way we live our live our lives as we seek to conform ourselves to Christ. We will explore faith in relation to areas such as grace, sin, the beatitudes, morals, virtue and vice.
4. The faith lived in relationship with God through prayer
Faith informs our relationship to God, and this relationship is experienced and nourished through prayer and devotion. We will explore the nature of prayer, how to pray, and why it is important.
Catholic Enquiry Group meets Tuesday evenings in the library under the church at 7:30pm.
