Kola Owolabi in Concert - Kelty Organ Recital, Saturday, March 25, 2017, 7:30 PM, Free & Open to Public 

Movie Night, Wednesday, March 22, 6:30 pm—Calvary is our Movie Night selection.  It is not a historical Jesus story, however it does contain an obvious Christ-figure in the lead character Fr. James (played by Brendan Gleeson).   Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia reviewed the movie in  He stated that Gleeson gives the best performance of a good priest that he has seen in years.  Archbishop Chaput says the story makes this movie.   In the first scene a parishioner enters the confessional and from behind the screen and says he intends to kill Fr. James in a week from Sunday.  We, the audience, do not see the potential murderer-to-be, but Fr. James has recognized the voice of the parishioner.  He spends the next week doing his job and living among and trying to help a large number of eccentric characters while his Calvary approaches. Archbishop Chaput also cautioned that this movie is not for the young or more sensitive viewers.  This caveat is echoed in a review by John Mulderig of Catholic News Service that states "it's not for the summertime popcorn set" alluding to language, violence, and sensitive subject matter."  However... "mature viewers prepared for rugged material, on the other hand, will likely consider their investment of time and attention well rewarded."  So please join us if you can in the 2nd Floor of the Office Building.  Popcorn will be provided, and discussion of this powerful film follows.

WHY Catholic? is a highly-acclaimed spiritual renewal, evangelization, and adult faith formation process developed by RENEW International.

Many Catholics have inherited the Catholic faith without knowing why they are Catholic.  They many not have been exposed to a solid faith formation.  Although many consider themselves Catholic, they would welcome renewing a clear Catholic identity that appreciates the unique basis, content, richness, and joy of our faith.  This, in turn, would help them become more comfortable in reaching out to others as everyday evangelizers. WHY Catholic? aims to help people better know Jesus Christ and his saving love for us.  It is for those who want to know more about their faith and share time with others deepening that faith.

The WHY Catholic? process is designed to balance prayer, sharing on Scripture, and reflection on the teachings of our faith, providing a full and fruitful faith-sharing experience for participants.  While a prayerful listening to and reflection on Scripture is an integral part of each session, Why Catholic?  is not meant to be Scripture study.

The process has been designed to help participants discover and embrace their own personal faith story.  It is founded on encouraging us to live the reasons why we are Catholic, and so lead us to a faith that is lived more authentically, connecting us more deeply and meaningfully to God, and to others.

Comments from Cathedral parishioners

"We came from different experiences in our faith journeys - but all drawn by that same faith - we were guided by the Holy Spirit to come together in prayer-to share-to grow." 

"I enjoyed the camaraderie that formed over the weeks."

"Everyone participated!  The class exposed the challenges Catholic Christians have with learning their own faith."

"I enjoyed the opportunity to meet other parishioners ... without Why Catholic, I certainly wouldn't have the opportunity to witness their inner faith."
