A Journey through Church History
Classes will be held
10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Our identity as Catholics means that we are the inheritors of the deeds of holy men and women who for 2,000 years have built a great civilization and spread the Gospel throughout the world. Church history is not just the recitation of popes, people, places and events; it is a story of adventure, intrigue, rebellion, reform and devotion. This story is our story; this is our family! If we know our past, and how we fit into the story, we will be better prepared to face whatever may come in the future.
In Epic, you will
Learn about the major people, places and events of the two-thousand years of Church history
Remember the 12 time periods of Church history using a unique color-coded system
Learn the true story of the Crusades
Discover the revolutionary character of the Protestant Reformation
Understand the rationale for the medieval inquisitors and the Spanish Inquisition
Discover the massive persecution of Christians in the twentieth century
Learn about the workings of the Holy Spirit throughout Church History . . . and much more!
Epic: A Journey through Church History fills an urgent need for adult Catholics to recover their history as a believing community, debunk false criticisms of their Church, and understand the Christian underpinnings of the modern world. This is a vivid, thorough and engaging program. I heartily recommend it.
