More Details on the Apologetics Class

August 24, 2008

The apologetics class is right on track.  Deacon Bob Skinner and I are excited about the opportunity to present this information to the parish.

Here’s everything you’re going to need to know (I hope; if I missed something, please ask!):

  • Classes will begin on Sunday, September 14, at 10:20 in the Science classroom of the school building (enter through the gym doors across from the church entrance, turn right, then left at the first hallway to the end.  The classroom with the tall bald black man in it will be the right one!).
  • The same class will be repeated on Wednesday, September 17, at 7:15 pm in The Visual Arts Classroom, next door to the Lay Minister’s Sacristy just off the narthex of the main church. (THIS IS A CHANGE FROM PREVIOUS INSTRUCTIONS)
  • The class schedule will run about twelve weeks, until Wednesday, December 17.  Each class will be taught on Sunday and Wednesday (same class each week, to give you flexibility in choosing a class to attend).
  • Child care will be available, if there is enough demand, for both class times.  We need to know what the needs are prior to September 14th so that we can arrange for the appropriate number of caregivers.  Please plan on a small donation (about $3.00) per class period to defray the cost of the caregivers.
  • The books we will use will be available at the first class on September 14th and 17th.  The set (text, study guide and a Catholic Verse Finder) costs $10.00; please make checks payable to St. Ann Catholic Church, or bring cash.  We’ll have the books at the first several classes; if we run out, we can always get more!  In addition to the texts we provide, the following will be helpful:
    — a Bible (New American Bible is the best one to use);
    — the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
  • Please do not be put off if you don’t think you can make all 12 classes.  The units stand alone, and do not build on one another; even if you can make only every other class, you’ll still get a lot out of it.
  • The class is geared to learners high school age or above.  Please feel free to enroll your teenagers if you like.

THE PAPER FORM FOR REGISTRATION IS NOW AVAILABLE IN THE BULLETIN, AND IN THE NARTHEX OF THE CHURCH; however, you can register simply by emailing the following information to either me or to Deacon Bob Skinner:

Name(s) of attendee(s)

Class you’re signing up for (Sun / Wed)

Email Address(es)

Contact phone number(s)

Name(s) and age(s) of any child(ren) needing care

And that’s it!  We look forward to seeing you in the class.  Please holler if there are questions.  Take care, and God bless!
