Catholic Faith Study

Fr. Lawrence will be instructing students on matters of the Catholic faith and guiding them through various provocative/controversial questions that often arise about it. People new to Catholicism will gain a foundational understanding of it, and those familiar with it will deepen their understanding of it.

Come check it out, there are no commitments involved - although, you'll probably get hooked!
