Catholicism: The Pivotal Players

Bishop Barron is on a new journey to unlock the truth behind the Catholic Church's most influential people.CATHOLICISM: The Pivotal Players is a multi-part film series that illumines a handful of saints, artists, mystics, and scholars who not only shaped the life of the Church but changed the course of civilization.  Persons explored include St. Francis of Assisi, St. Thomas Aquinas, and St. Catherine of Siena.

What Happens at Mass

Catholics worship God in a variety of ways, but the chief act of corporate or communal worship is the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Throughout the centuries, the liturgy of the Church has taken a variety of regional and historical forms, but one thing has remained constant: The Mass has always been the central form of Catholic worship.  Our participation in the Mass and our frequent reception of Holy Communion brings us the grace that Christ merited for the world through His unselfish Sacrifice on the Cross. 

La Exploración de la Santa Misa

Antiguamente, la preparación para la reunión de todos los que se congregaban para una celebración, se hacía con una procesión solemne.

Oremus (latin for “let us pray”)

Oremus is a Catholic prayer study program that will teach you the essentials of a fruitful prayer life.  It is a video series and there is an accompanying text that participants would need to work on in and out of class. Do you find it easy to pray? Is prayer an integral part of your day?

Psalms: The School of Prayer

With Psalms: The School of Prayer, The Great Adventure moves from telling the Story to making it personal. While the historical books of the Bible recount God's creative and redemptive acts in history, the Psalms reveal Israel's response to God's covenant offer and serve as a model for our response to Him.

Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible
