CATHOLICISM: The Pivotal Players

Bishop Robert Barron's ground-breaking Pivotal Players series concludes this week on July 3, 2017 at 8:00 pm in the Parish Centre, with two converts to Catholicism, John Henry Newman and G.K. Chesterton. John Henry Newman came into the Church as a convert and used his prodigious intellectual gifts to help the Church better understand its identity and mission.  G.K. Chesterton, a nineteenth century literary convert, shows that the fundamental disposition of effective evangelisation is joy, and that life in Christ is a day-to-day encounter with an abundant and surprising offer of grace.  Newman and Chesterton show us how to effectively engage our culture in challenges of truth in matters of religion, that is too often befuddled by Christ and suspicious of the Church.
