All Invited to Experience New Series ‘Catholicism’ at Showings in Indianola



INDIANOLA (SNR) - The new television series "Catholicism" will be shown, free of charge, at St. Catherine Hall in Indianola, just north of the church at 815 D St.

The series will be shown over several weeks beginning Jan. 15 and all are welcome to attend, Catholic or non-Catholic.

"Catholicism" is a compelling series created by Father Robert Barron of Chicago over several years of research and travel. Because of its nature and quality, some of the series was chosen to be shown on PBS stations. It does not just tell, but shows "the story of the Catholic Faith as never seen before."

All are invited to view the series and learn what Catholics believe and why, by exploring the art, architecture, literature, music and all the riches of the Catholic tradition.

Filmed on location and in the streets, ‘Catholicism’ illustrates the splendor of the global Church, in original, high-definition cinematography.

Father Barron, creator of the series, is an author, speaker, evangelist, spiritual teacher, theologian, TV and radio personality. His series is "the Catholic story told from the inside, with knowledge, sympathy and passion, rooted in friendship with Jesus Christ."

The first showing in Indianola will begin at 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 15, and there will be 10 weekly sessions, through March 18, the fourth Sunday of Lent. After each 50- to 60-minute DVD session, St. Catherine pastor Father Thomas McGuire will offer a brief question and answer period.

"If you have been curious about the Catholic faith, wanted to understand it better, whether you are Catholic or someone close to you is, come!" said Father McGuire. "Come for the first session and see what you think; or come for half of the sessions; or come during Lent; or, if possible, come to all sessions."

With questions, please call Father McGuire at 308-364-2428.
