Our parish offers opportunities to study the Scriptures or books on Christian faith in a group setting. In our sessions, we spend time to get to know one another, dive into a book or text, and discover how God is present and speaking to us in our lives. Teens and adults are invited to the program.
Spring 2024 Session: The Creed
Recent decades have witnessed a surge of the religiously unaffiliated, especially among young people. Many former believers have simply turned their backs on Christianity and no longer accept its teachings. But what are those teachings? And are they the same as what so many people reject?
At St. Stephen Catholic Church, we will take at look at this new film series blending both documentary footage and dynamic talks. Bishop Robert Barron guides viewers into the depths of the Nicene Creed, a fourth-century statement of faith that has profoundly influenced both Eastern and Western spirituality, theology, and liturgy.
Explore the meaning of “belief” and whether it contradicts reason; the creative love of God the Father; the shocking mystery of his Son’s Incarnation and the great drama of his Crucifixion and Resurrection; the life-giving power of the Spiritus Sanctus, or “Holy Breath,” shared between them; and the mystical reality of the Church, which calls all of humanity out of the world of sin to receive forgiveness and participate in Christ’s divinity—not only in the next world but here and now.
The Creed will help you rediscover the great intellectual and spiritual depths of Christian doctrine and reclaim the unity, clarity, and conviction of the Christian faith.
It runs from Thursdays, from January 18 until March 7, 2024.
