Mass Intentions
We have added an option to our website for our community to request Mass Intentions.  If you would like to offer a Mass for a loved one or special intention please feel free to use this link gtcc.co/massintentions to submit your request.  You will be contacted once the Mass is scheduled with the specific date and time.
CC Essentials Library
Fr. Branson mentioned another great book in his homily again? Have a friend you want to introduce to the big ideas of the faith? Want to grow your own spiritual life or relationships? Check out one of our great books at the CC Essentials Library. Located right by the coffee bar, the library is now open for business (although new arrivals will be coming soon). Check out the list of books at gtcc.co/LibraryList

Of note are our 50 copies of Time for God by Fr. Jacques Philippe, check one of our copies out for a great Lenten read.

Faith Formation
Apologetics Series:
Faith & Reason

Tuesday, February 16th // 7 PM
Join us for the second class of our Spring 2021 Apologetics Series on Tuesday at 7 PM in the Catholic Center lobby. We will be discussing faith & reason, 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!
