Coffee & Catholicism 2019-2020
From January 7 through March 31, we will be presenting and discussing Bishop Robert Barron's Program, THE MASS. A broad misunderstanding of what is happening at Mass has shaped several generations of Catholics. Walk through the liturgy with Bishop Barron and be transformed through insights on the most privileged and intimate encounter with Jesus Christ. See how the Mass resonates with a call from God and a response from God's people, the Church. Most importantly, develop a greater appreciation of how we are intimately joined with the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus through the Holy Eucharist. The program will help us understand how to fully, consciously, and actively participate in the source and summit of our Christian life.
One intriguing insight explored in session 1, "A Privileged Encounter", is the notion of the Mass as the supreme form of play!

Coffee and Catholicism Presents
A MODEL OF LAY SPIRITUALITY
AND OF CHRISTIAN JOY
Part 1 - November 12
Part 2 - November 19
For Chesterton, everything is informed by gratitude. His prolific writings consistently proclaimed three main themes: everything points to God; a combination of wonder, joy and thankfulness; and freedom in Christ - any assault on our free will is an assault on human dignity.
Each week’s discussion will follow viewing a part of the G.K. Chesterton DVD from Bishop Robert Barron’s Catholicism: the Pivotal Players. You will be amazed by how relevant his wisdom is to our lives today.
Our faith-based bereavement support group is in its second session.
If interested in future sessions please contact Pastoral Associate Katherine Cappuccio,
