“The Church has proclaimed the good, the true and the beautiful for two millennia. I don’t know of a project that has shown that in a more dazzling way than CATHOLICISM.”
(Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York)
An Invitation from Magherafelt Parish Pastoral Council
The CATHOLICISM Faith Formation Programme on DVD brings the beauty, goodness and truth of the Church to life so that you can better understand and share your faith.
With creator and host Fr. Robert Barron, you will learn what Catholics believe and why while being immersed in the art, architecture, literature, beliefs and practices of the Catholic tradition –
all in stunning, cinematic high definition on the big screen.
Join us from Wednesday 5th February at 8pm in Holy Family Primary School Hall, Magherafelt.
Catholicism – It’s YOUR story!
Witness the most significant story ever told…
For the first time, in breath-taking, high definition cinematography, the beauty and truth of the Catholic faith is illustrated in a rich, multimedia experience.
The ten-part DVD series is filmed in stunning, high-definition cinematography in over 50 locations in 15 countries. Throughout the journey, Father Barron explains what Catholics believe and why — and illustrates the richness of the Church’s global culture, the incomparable beauty of its art and architecture, and the depths of the Faith. Be illuminated by the global culture that claims more than one billion of the earth’s people.
From the sacred lands of Israel to the beating heart of Uganda, from the glorious shrines of Italy, France, and Spain, to the streets of Mexico, Calcutta, New York City and Lough Derg, the mystery of Catholicism is revealed.
In the recent parish survey, you asked us to provide more formation in our Catholic faith. So we invite you to join us on this epic journey around the world and deep into the faith across 10 weeks beginning Wednesday 5th February at 8pm in the Holy Family Primary School Hall, Magherafelt. You don’t need to go to all 10 weeks – you can come and go as you please. Each week in the bulletin we’ll tell you what the next episode is about. Check out the website for more details and some trailers.
