Jewish Roots of Holy Week

Roots of Holy WeekIf you knew you only had one week left to live, how would you spend it? What would you do?

Most people know that Jesus celebrated the Last Supper on Holy Thursday, died on Good Friday, and lay dead in the tomb on Holy Saturday. But what about the other days of Holy Week? What did Jesus choose to say and do on the last seven days of his life?   

In these riveting presentations, Dr. Brant Pitre takes his knowledge of the Jewish roots of Christianity and uses it to unveil the mysteries of the most sacred and solemn week of the entire year: "Holy Week."

If you're looking to get more out of the season of Lent this year, enter into the mystery of Holy Week with Jesus by attending this special Bible study.

Join us for a two-hour presentation on Thursday, March 25, 2020, from 6:30 until 8:30 PM in the Fr. Courtney Reception Room.

There is NO FEE, but only if you register by March 9. Click here for online registration. You may also download the form at the bottom of this page.

 

 

Will Catholics be Left Behind

Left BehindConfusion over the Book of Revelation is widespread. To truly understand God’s word, however, we must follow the Magisterium of his holy Church, and refuse to be misled by popular alarmist notions that conflict with the revealed meaning of John’s inspired words.

Carl Olson is a former Fundamentalist and grew up with many misconceptions about the "end times." This study is a thorough critique of the popular Fundamentalist notion of the "Rapture"--the belief that Christians will be removed from earth prior to a time of Tribulation and the Second Coming.
