Catholic Questions

We all have questions in our challenging and changing world. Come explore the beautiful and timeless teachings of the Catholic Church to lead you in the way of true answers.

 

 

  • Each week is a stand-alone topic. No need to commit to a series and no registration is required. Choose the question that piques your interest. Come as your schedule allows. See below for topics and dates.
  • Facilitated by Jack Panosian – his faith journey has brought him from Atheist to Saint Jude Catechist. There is not a question you have that he has not already asked himself and found the true answer in the teachings of the Catholic Church.
