There's still time to join! RCIA stands for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. This is a weekly meeting on Thursday nights from 7-9 pm in the Parish Center where we explore the teachings of the Catholic Church. Who comes to RCIA? While RCIA is meant to be focused on non-Catholics who are inquiring about the faith, it is also a great opportunity for Catholics to learn more about their faith. We invite and welcome anyone who wants to learn more about the faith: non-Catholic, active Catholic, skeptical Catholic, young or mature, member or non-ember. There are no costs, no obligations, no tests, and no pressures - just a gentle, non-coercive way of discovering the beauty and mystery of the Catholic faith. Please invite a friend to join you in the journey. Please call Fr. Tom to register or if you have any questions, 402-572-0499. Read the Full Story
The Mystery of God
Atheism is on the rise. Skeptical thinkers like Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris vigorously attack belief in God as irrational or, even worse, dangerous. The so-called New Atheism has attracted millions of young people thanks to best selling books. "The Mystery of God" is a new six part film series and study program by Bishop Robert Barron. The lessons reach into our rich intellectual tradition. Using the insights of St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas, Pope Benedict XVI, we'll uncover a clear yet sophisticated understanding of what we mean by "God." This series will be facilitated by Jo Kusek and MaryAnn Miller, SEA Parishioner, beginning Tuesday, October 20 from 1-2:30 pm in SEA Parish Center. Please contact Jo at 402-572-0499 to register. Cost is $10 to defray the cost of the DVDs. Read the Full Story
Mary: A Biblical Walk with the Blessed Mother
This is an eight part DVD series with Dr. Edward Sri and is filmed on location in the Holy Land. As we walk with Mary through her life, we will consider what the Bible tells us about her journey of faith and what practical lessons we can gain from her for our own relationship with God. We will also see what the Scriptures tell us about Catholic Marian beliefs. Our focus will be on the Scriptures themselves, but we also will consider insights from Catholic tradition that can help illuminate the Mary of the New Testament.
The series will be offered for eight Monday evenings from 7-8:30 pm in SJ Parish Center began Sept. 21 and ends on November 9. Please RSVP to Jo Kusek, 402-572-0369.
