Golden Grahams of Catholic advice

B.C. Catholic columnist at upcoming Summer Institute

Graham Osborne, known as "The Shy Catholic," to B.C. Catholic readers, will teach an all-day course – Catholic for a Reason-Part 1 – at this year's Summer Institute August 27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The course's goal is to help Catholics learn how to explain and defend their faith using the example of the Bible and the early Church.

This first part of the course is entitled, "Upon This Rock: How Can We Know All That Jesus Taught?" and will delve deep into the following questions:
-Why do we need to explain or defend the Catholic Faith to others, especially Christians?
-Why is true Christian unity so critical to the world today?
-Why be Catholic and not some other faith or religion?
-How can we know with certainty everything Jesus taught? Did He build a Church on Earth?
-How can the Pope be infallible? How do we know St Peter was the 1st Pope?
-Do we follow the Bible alone or should we listen to the Church too?
-How about the Early Church? Did it believe what the Catholic Church teaches today?

This year the event will take place at Holy Cross Regional Secondary School at 16193 88th Ave,
Surrey in Surrey.

For more information about this and other courses offered at the institute, contact the archdiocesan Office of Religious Education at 604-683-0281 or ore@rcav.org.
