The Catechism in a Year Podcast
with Fr. Mike Schmitz begins
January 1, 2023!

If you have ever wanted to understand what it means to be Catholic and allow those truths to shape your life – this podcast is for you!

What is The Catechism of the Catholic Church?

Published in 1992 under the direction of Saint Pope John Paul II, the Catechism of the Catholic Church is the compendium of the essentials of Church teaching.

Will St. Mary of Lourdes be doing anything to go along with The Catechism in a Year?

Yes! Join Fr. Bolek for a monthly Q&A and discussion of the previous month’s readings. This will be a potluck dinner held following the 4:30pm Saturday Vigil Mass in the Parish Hall. Table service and drinks will be provided. All participants are asked to bring a dish (or 2) that serves 7-10 people. Dishes may be dropped off before Mass in the hall. Please see the online parish calendar for the date of each month’s Saturday evening parish dinner. Questions? Please contact Ileen Grebner.
