This seven-week course is designed to give participants an introduction to the Church’s liturgical year. We will study the Church’s calendar of feasts and celebrations. Using the axiom: “We celebrate what we believe” we will study the structure, history and meaning of the most important celebrations and seasons on the Catholic calendar. We will study how the fundamental beliefs of our faith are all contained in our church calendar and what priority each is given.
