Adult Small Group Studies

Jesus Christ calls His followers to an ever deepening knowledge and love of Him as well as growth in communion with one another in His Church.  The Cathedral Parish offers a variety of Adult Small Group Studies to facilitate these two key aims of Christian discipleship. These small groups meet for a time of prayer, study of the Catholic faith, and discussion.  Our hope is that as adults of our parish meet regularly with one another to pray, study, and discuss God's Word, they will come to know, love, and follow Jesus more closely as Catholics as well as form deepening friendships with others in the parish community.

With the help of Christopher West's "An Introduction to Theology of the Body," we will learn that the Church’s teaching on sex and marriage “makes sense”, and, in fact, is the “logic” of Christianity, because it corresponds perfectly with the deepest stirrings and desires of the human heart. This class is for everyone searching for their ultimate purpose in life.
Some highlights of what we will reflect on and discuss...
  • Learn why the redemption of our sexuality is the key to happiness.
  • Develop a “new lens” through which to see the world with greater clarity.
  • See how God’s mystery is revealed through the body and spousal love.
  • Discover the truth behind the lies of lust and pornography and how they can be overcome.
