WHAT DOES THE CATHOLIC CHURCH TEACH?

 A Class on the Catechism of the Catholic Church 

Southmont has organized a class for men interested in learning more about the teaching of the Catholic Church.  Under the leadership of John Coverdale, Professor emeritus of Seton Hall Law School, the group will meet via Zoom and will study the Catechism of the Catholic Church (“CCC”). 

The class will begin at 9:10 a.m. and end promptly at 10:30 a.m.  Classes are monthly, usually on the 3rd Saturday.

No special preparation for the discussions is needed, although obviously it would be helpful to have read the points beforehand. If you don’t have time to read all the points of the Catechism before class, it might be a good idea to look over the much briefer treatment in the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.  (“Compendium”). It is not necessary to attend all of the sessions to benefit from them.  It would be helpful have a copy of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.  We will use the Second Edition (published in 2000),  and the numbers of the points listed above are taken from that edition, but a first edition would do fine.
