Remember when you were a kid and your mom would always tell you,”Shhhh….be quiet!” Well, God tells us that too, even now as adults. He calls us to be quiet, so that we learn to listen to him and make space for him. Come learn about the concept of silence and what role it could play in our daily lives. Does silence really apply to people today? Is it possible? If I want to learn silence, how do I even start? Join us at Catholic Conversations to learn more!

Do you sometimes struggle with “how” to pray? Sometimes it seems to work; you feel the connection with God, but other times it seems like you just can’t connect, or that He has abandoned you altogether. And what’s worse, in those times when it seemed to be working, you have no idea why or what you did to make it work.

Prayer and the spiritual life can be difficult to navigate and understand. Executive Director of Evangelization and Catechesis for theArchdiocese of Oklahoma City, Jim Beckman, will be talking about fundamental relationship skills for the spiritual life, and how to grow in ever increasing intimacy with God!

Please come join us for beer, BBQ, and fellowship as we learn more about our faith. Come a little early at 6:45pm to eat and socialize. Mr. Beckman will begin speaking at 7:30, and should wrap up around 8:30 to give us some some additional time to visit with each other and discuss his talk.

We hope to see you all there!

There will also be adoration available before and after ToT at St. Joseph’s Old Cathedral (one block west of Blu’s BBQ). If you are interested in joining and need the door code, please text/call Dominic Hoang (405.204.1012) or Leah Cote (949.923.9018)

“You are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” -Jesus, ~33 AD

To start off 2018 we’ll be doing our first catholic conversations over an apologetics topic: the papacy.

What is it?
Why do we have it?
Does it matter?
Is the papacy infallible?
Does the current pope have as much say as St. Peter, the first pope? Why?

We’ll go over all these questions and more this Thursday! Come with questions you or your friends may have and we’ll discuss how to defend this critical aspect of the Catholic faith!

We know that parents, especially, and the Church in her maternal and paternal care of families, have reason to take very seriously the formation not only of young children but also of all those who will work and pray and learn and teach their families and neighbors. Those who are called to be parents will be the “first teachers,” as the Catechism says, of their children; those who are called to other forms of service, particularly to priestly fatherhood or other forms of pastoral care, will have analogous responsibility for not only teaching, but for teaching teachers.

Unfortunately, modern education has too often been premised on disrupting these chains of parental and parochial instruction. Consider that “parochial” has been used like “provincial” to mean that someone is narrow-minded or mostly ignorant, and you’ll see what I mean. Even within the Church and among many Christians, a habit of adopting modern methods with blithe confidence that concerns about spiritual formation can stay in a separate box from concerns about teaching methods has prevailed. The predictable result? Generations who believe that modern methods get at the “real facts” about the world people live in, while religion lives in a separate box that most schools today label “mere opinion.”

Dr. Peter Epps believes we can do better than that. Reaching back to the heart of the Liberal Arts tradition, Dr. Epps sees a well-tested method of teaching “how to think about what really is” that is eminently practical and possible for anyone to practice and teach in the context of everyday life–and to take as far as aptitude and leisure permit. Reading piles of Great Books is fun, but optional; understanding how thinking works, and how to look for durable wisdom (traces of divine revelation) in all human learning, is essential.

After laying some groundwork, Dr. Epps will sketch in a vision of a Liberal Arts education that will challenge you to re-think how you’ll live as a lifelong learner, and how you’ll share in the responsibility of parents and the Church, becoming a fellow learner and sometime teacher among the families and neighborhoods you form. And then he’ll ask you to help him figure out how each of us can cooperate to make that vision live and breathe.

Please feel free to join for Vespers at St. Joseph’s Old Cathedral at 6:15 before the talk.

As always! There will be adoration available before and after ToT at St. Joseph’s Old Cathedral (one block west of Blu’s BBQ). If you are interested in joining and need the door code, please text/call Dominic Hoang (405-204-1012) or Tyler Lofgren (405-474-3672)

Outline for the evening!
6:15p.m. Vespers at St. Joseph’s Old Cathedral
7:00p.m. Meet, eat, drink, and fellowship begins at Blus BBQ
7:30p.m. Dr. Peter Epps begins his talk!
