Faith Formation

Monday, April 5th // 8 PM
Come join us this Monday for the first night of our three-part Senior Series! We will be discussing the themes related to faith & community outside of the college setting: what does it mean to form community in a chaotic culture? Are we responsible for belonging to a parish? How do you navigate the changes and challenges of life through the lens of faith? We look forward to exploring these themes with you!  

While geared toward those preparing to graduate, all are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Make sure to mark your calendars for the coming nights as well:
Monday, 4/12, 8PM: Finances & Freedom
Monday, 4/19, 8PM: Work & Rest

"As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.” John 20:21

 
Apologetics Series:
Biblical Origin of the Church

Tuesday, April 6th // 7 PM
Join us for the eighth class of our Spring 2021 Apologetics Series on Tuesday at 7 PM in the Catholic Center lobby. We will be discussing the biblical origins of the Church, masks and social distancing required!

This semester, the Catholic Center will be offering an ongoing lecture and discussion series for Apologetics. This series will give you the tools to provide an explanation and defense for the Catholic faith: starting from the existence of God, all the way to the Traditions of the Church. 

The classes will aim to build off each other, but please feel free to attend whichever you’re interested in!

 
Eucharist Class
Wednesday, April 7th // 7 PM
Georgia Tech's Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mooney will be holding two classes for the GTCC community on hot topics of the Catholic faith! The second class is this Wednesday, April 7th, 7-8 PM on the outside patio covering the Eucharist, including situations when some non-Catholics may be (or not be!) permitted to receive. Masks and distancing will be required. 

Dr. Mooney has Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, received a M.A. in Philosophy, and has theological training through the Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei. 
Contact Michael Probst at mprobst6@gatech.edu for any questions concerning the event. We hope you can join us and bring your questions!
