Questions Catholics are Frequently Asked

Wednesday, July 14,  will be live in Corbett Hall at 7:00 PM.

Thursday, July 15,  will be a virtual Zoom presentation at 7:00 PM.  

Georgia is a community of many religions. There are often tough questions raised by non-Catholic Christians about our faith and the Bible.   As Catholics, we are encouraged to grow in our knowledge and understanding of our faith.  The publication, Our Sunday Visitor, has prepared a list of the following ten questions which are frequently asked of Catholics:

Are you saved?
If you died tonight, would you go to heaven?
Why do you worship wafers?
Why do you worship Mary?
Why do you confess your sins to a priest?
Why do you pray to idols (statues)?
Why do you pray for the dead?
Why do you call your priest “Father”?
Why do you obey the Pope?
Are your beliefs found in the Bible?

As Catholics, we may have been asked these or similar questions in the past.  People would not usually ask us these questions unless they noticed a spiritual orientation in our lives.  If we set a good example for others, if we show love of God and love of neighbor by our actions, people may then become more interested in the faith we profess.  We should try our best to explain and defend our faith.

On Wednesday and Thursday evenings this week,  Deacon Henry Hein and Deacon Leo Gahafer will hold sessions to address some of these questions.   Ask questions, join in the discussion, grow your faith, be led into the fullness of the truth.

Please join us for an interesting and lively discussion.
