 General Description:

Catholic Faith Explorers Series

Catholics are coming alive, like never before, to the fact that we are called be God to know and live our faith.  We are hungering to know more about our faith and are searching for materials and adult faith enrichment programs that inspire, inform, and equip us to do the work that God has called us to do.

Excellent resources for individual or small group study.  Each workbook thoroughly presents Church teachings in everyday language and focuses on how to apply it in daily life.  The workbooks are filled with numerous scriptural and Catechism references for more in-depth study, as well as a list of additional recommended resources and websites to learn more.

Never before in the history of the Church has the essential role of the layperson been so dramatically emphasized as it is now.  Particularly since Vatican II, the Church has called for a renewal in the life and role of the laity.

Yet, for many of us we don't understand what that means.  It sounds right and like something that needs to happen, but we really don't understand what it is we're supposed to be doing.  To be able to fulfill our important role in the Church, we must more clearly understand the Church's teaching on laity.

With Today's Disciples participants learn:

  • the lay state is a "vocation" derived from our Baptism,
  • the role of the laity is essential in accomplishing the mission of the Church,
  • laypeople are called to engage in the affairs of the world and direct them according to God's will,
  • the unique capability that laypeople have to bring Christ's divine message of salvation to every aspect of life, and
  • how to discern one's calling.
