Why Catholic? Program

A Concrete Approach to Help Adults Deepen Their Faith

Catholics often face opportunities to share their faith with others, but lack the basic knowledge and confidence to do so. Why Catholic? has a rich scriptural and catechetical approach that gives a solid foundation for every Catholic to express their faith and be able to reach out to others in faith. 

Why Catholic? offers a concrete approach to help adults deepen their Catholic faith and connect its teachings to their everyday lives. 

  • Explores Catholic teaching with direct quotes from Catechism of the Catholic Church, scriptural references, and reflection questions
  • Covers four themes of Catholic beliefs, sacraments, morality, and prayer 
    • We conduct 6 weekly sessions, twice per theme
    • You don't need to have a deep understanding of the Christian faith, just a willingness to explore your faith!
  • Occurs in a prayerful small community setting that is a supportive environment for evangelization and adult faith formation

The next “Why Catholic?” program at the Blue Hills Collaborative begins the week of February 12, 2018 when our topic will continue to be BELIEFS. This is the contuation of the program that ran before Advent for 6 weeks. 

What Do Catholics Believe?

Why Catholic? provides a basic theological overview of the Creed, with special emphasis on the central mystery of our Christian faith: the Blessed Trinity. Why Catholic? shows you where to find answers to questions of your faith, including Sacred Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
