What’s in your Catholic Toolbox?

There are tools that can make it easier to understand and live your Catholic Faith. Just like using the right tool makes any other job easier, using the tools of the Faith can make living it easier.

What’s in your Bible Toolbox?

There are tools that can make it easier to understand the Bible. This, in turn, will make it easier to apply what you are learning in the Bible to living your faith.

Catholic Toolbox and Bible Toolbox Talks

We are holding a series of talks designed to give you the tools to live, explore, learn, and grow in your Faith.  These talks are being held on certain Wednesday evenings in room 101 in the compound.  You can come to any of them that you wish to come to, and each is a stand alone talk, so if you miss one or more, you can still come to any others you want to come to.  Handouts and other materials will be posted here after the talks.
