It is not sufficient to know about Jesus Christ. We must come to encounter him as a living person. While this encounter can take many forms, in its essence the encounter with Jesus Christ moves from an object for our consideration to a subject with whom we enter into personal relationship.
en•coun•ter catholicism© allows adults from all faith backgrounds to explore the Catholic faith, its tenets, practices, history and meaning in the world today. Weekly topics are broad-based and are designed to enrich the faith of cradle Catholics, those raised without any faith tradition at all, converts, or those simply curious about Catholicism.
Not a class, not a series, but a fast paced engaging hour on a different topic by a different presenter each week. Join us Wednesdays from 6 to 7 p.m. in the Monsignor Ben Kasteel Hall of Christ the King Cathedral Family Activity Center. Come every week, once or twice a month, or whenever the Spirit leads you. Each session stands alone. Nursery available.

Wednesday, March 8 through Wednesday, April 5: A Special 5-Part en-coun-ter Catholicism Series: The Ignatian Workout for Lent
For the first time ever en-coun-ter Catholicism© offers five consecutive sessions on one topic. Come to one, several or all five as we explore the Lenten pillar of prayer through the teachings of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. The first presentation in the series considers the question, “What is Ignatian prayer?” The remaining four sessions will consider Ignatian Spirituality, Finding God in All Things, Discernment and Decision Making, the Examen of Conscience and The Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. These five sessions promise to be highly interactive and will feature some of your very favorite en-coun-ter presenters, along with a few new ones.
