We’ll talk about the Ten Commandments; discuss the Apostles’ Creed; try to understand the core features of the liturgy, the features of a Christian church building, and the meaning of the vestments; talk about the Sacraments and church rites; study the Lord’s Prayer, and of course answer your questions!
Below is an incomplete list of topics that will be covered:
– How does man learn about God?
