Did you resolve to learn more about the faith?

If your New Year's resolutions included taking some steps toward a more solid, adult understanding of Catholicism, get your calendar out and start marking it!

This Saturday we continue our ongoing study of "Love and Responsibility," an early work of Karol Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II) which reflects his experience as a pastor. If people dismiss Pope John Paul's words on marriage because he himself was not married, they are forgetting that he was the spiritual guide for a number of couples and listened deeply to them. When we read "Love and Responsibility" or "Theology of the Body" we are listening to them, too, through the theological lens of their saintly pastor. Saturday we meet at 10:30 here at the bookstore (ask to be admitted to the conference room); Father Thomas Loya will be our guide for this free morning study.

Next week we begin our 20-week Scripture program, using the Great Adventure DVD series (but with an on-site facilitator). This is a Bible overview program. Class starts at 10:30, and runs every Saturday (except the 2nd Saturday of the month) from January 15 through June 25. BYOB: Bring your own Bible! Call 312 346 4228 to register; the class fee is $40 (optional workbook is $30).
