Faith formation classes offered

PROVIDENCE — Classes are being offered for individuals who are curious to know more about the Roman Catholic Church and its teachings. Each session presents an opportunity to explore the faith, reflect on the catechism, and participate in discussions. Classes will meet in the hall at the Cathedral of SS. Peter and Paul, 30 Fenner St., for four consecutive Mondays at 7 p.m., except for Columbus Day, and from January to Easter, 2015, also on Mondays at 7 p.m. Father Robert Barron’s DVD series, “Catholicism,” will be presented with questions, as well as a discussion led by Father Peter Mongeon. All are welcome to attend this Faith Formation program, which meets all RCIA requirements for the Diocese of Providence. For more information, call 331-2434.
Mass attendance is the basis of faith …
With the onset of fall, school is back in session, and with summer break over comes the annual deluge of phone calls to parish offices everywhere. The question being asked, in one form or another, is “When is registration for CCD?”
Remarried Catholics issue larger than …
A conversation about Divorced Catholics who remarry in the civil law can not just be about marriage. Welcoming Catholics remarried outside the Church to Holy Communion means also admitting them to the entirety of the sacramental body of the Church, namely the sacraments of Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick. So any pastoral response to the plight of the remarried Catholic must take into consideration both Canon law and natural law. As the Church hopefully continues its needed discussion on this matter, the faithful may also pray for wisdom and understanding along with the Magisterium and her advisors.
Without a doubt
