Why Catholic?

Do you have questions about the Catholic Church?

Like, why do Catholics believe the things that they do? What are these "Sacraments" that I hear about? What's with all of the kneeling and standing during Mass? And why is it called a Mass instead of a service? Why is the Blessed Virgin Mary such a big deal to Catholics? Why can't I take part in communion at Mass if I'm not Catholic? Why dip your fingers in water and cross yourself?...

If you have ever had these or any other questions about the Catholic faith now is your chance to get them answered. Fr. Ken Phillips at the Church of Christ the King in Mandan will be holding his Inquiry Classes again, starting in January. This is your opportunity to learn about and better understand the teachings of the Catholic Church and get your questions answered directly by a priest. Whatever you question go ahead and ask, he can take it! That's what he is there for. It is a relaxed and fun way to get insight into some pretty amazing things.

Don't worry, if you aren't from the area or can't make it to the classes, Fr. Ken has recorded them so you can buy a DVD and go through the lessons one by one on your own time. How great is that?

I can't recommend these classes enough since this is how God worked to bring me home to the Catholic Church. You have to believe that I think very highly of the information presented in the lessons! : )

If you feel any kind of inkling inside of you about any of this, that is God talking to you and you need to listen. It's as easy as clicking on the link above and getting signed up for the classes. Go ahead, you have absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain!
