We belong to a church  community of saints and scholars stretching back 2,000 years. That story is told by author Thomas E. Wood in his book “How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization.” This isa must read for all well informed people proud of, and indebted to their heritage.

This same story is told in the DVD series “Civilization” by Kenneth Clark as he outlines the evolving civilization of the West influenced by the Church and others over the centuries.

For our Enrichment Program, there will be a  weekly DVD presentation of “Civilization” followed by discussion with Fr. Donie.

Mondays at 7:30 PM in Room 1
