Pope Benedict has recently designated October 2012 to November 2013 to be a “Year of Faith” asking Catholics everywhere to become re-acquainted with the Catechism of the Catholic Church. To honor his request, on November 13, we will be starting a year-long guided study of the Catechism at St. Pius X using the Faith Alive Catechism Study for Small Group series. This study will be held every Tuesday night at 7:00 p.m. in the Family Life Center for the next 12 months. The cost of the program will only be the cost of the study guides themselves. For more information, please call Jay at 303-364-7435.
