Catholicism 101 will resume on Thursday, February 12, from 12:05 to 12:30 pm.

We gather for a short presentation on some feature of Catholic life such as confession, religious liberty, the Pope and the Magisterium, the Sacraments, Mary and the Saints, the Priesthood, the Laity, Salvation and many more. Presentations are followed by a friendly and frank discussion. Catholics and non-Catholics alike are very welcome! Come to whichever discussion interests you. You need not have attended prior sessions to join us.
