HNOJ Catholic Fundamentals Speaker Series
This summer Fr. Ryan unpacked the fundamentals of our Catholic Mass over the course of a five part series on the Mass. In a similar way, HNOJ invites you this fall to dig into the fundamental beliefs and practices of the Catholic faith. You can come to one or all of the Tuesday evening lectures on these foundational topics.
While the primary audience for this series is our OCIA (Order of Catholic Initiation for Adults) who are discerning entering the Church at Easter next year, this series will be helpful to people at most levels of formation and practice.
No RSVP or registration needed. We will have extra seats set up at the back of the room for anyone attending who isn’t part of the OCIA group.
When: Most Tuesdays Oct - April (Fall topic schedule below)
Time: 7 - 8:30 p.m.
Where: Emmaus ABCD at Holy Name of Jesus.
Who: Anyone looking to grow in their faith
Registration: No Registration or RSVP, come when you can.
7 - 7:30 p.m. Opening Prayer, Welcome and OCIA Announcements
7:30 - 8:10 Presentation on the Topic and Q&A
