Defending the Faith series
St. Catharine Church
108 Middletown Road
Recognizing that talking about faith with others can at times be intimidating, St. Catharine Parish, Holmdel, has introduced a way to help folks overcome their fear. Starting Sept. 18, the parish is hosting an eight-week Defending the Faith series that is an introductory, interactive, apologetics training course designed to enable all Catholics to joyfully discuss their with family, friends and even strangers without anger, argument or ill feelings. The weekly series, which concludes Nov. 13, will be offered on Monday mornings from 10 to 11:30 a.m. and again in the evenings from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The discussions will begin with “knowing the truth, then believing what we know,” and will continue with listening for worldviews and countering errors in worldviews. There is no fee to attend the course, but participants will be asked to make a free-will offering to cover refreshments and supplies. Due to seating capacity, morning and evening series are limited to 40 particpiants. For additional information on the Defending the Faith workshop, contact Deacon Hansen at firstname.lastname@example.org. St. Catharine Parish is located at 108 Middletown Road, Holmdel.
