Catholicism Adult Formation Program


On 1st & 3rd Tuesdays, 7-8:45pm in the Social Hall of St Ambrose Catholic parish (1975 E 2300 S, Salt Lake City) and continuing through July, we will be watching the Catholicism video series and then will have small group discussions about what we've seen. There have been over 50 folks attending at each session so far; each session is fairly independent and you do not have to attend all sessions.

Fr Robert Barron's Catholicism documentary is a ten episode video series, filmed at 50 locations throughout 15 countries, presenting the history, teaching, and culture of the Catholic Church via high quality cinematography (the series has run on the BBC).

Noted author George Weigel describes the 10 hour series as “A stimulating and compelling exploration of the spiritual, moral, and intellectual riches of the Catholic world. This is the Catholic story told from inside, with knowledge, sympathy, and passion, rooted in friendship with Jesus Christ.”

Episode titles:

March 5th: Amazed and Afraid: The Revelation of God become Man
March 19th: Happy are We: The Teachings of Jesus
April 2nd: The Ineffable Mystery of God: That than which nothing greater can be 
April 16th: Our Tainted Nature's Solitary Boast: Mary, the mother of God

The Indispensable Men: Peter, Paul and the missionary adventure
A Body both Suffering & Glorious: The mystical union of Christ and the Church
Word Made Flesh, True Bread of Heaven: The Church's sacrament and worship
A Vast Company of Witnesses: The communion of saints
The Fire of His Love: Prayer and the life of the Spirit
