Our Seekers Group
Tonite, we have another meeting of our Seeker's Group. In this small group at our home, we invite non-Catholics who are interested in learning a little more about Catholicism to come for an open discussion regarding the Catholic Church. Our goal is not to "convert" or proselytize but give a reasoned defense of what it is that Catholics believe (or should believe). We use the Bible, the Catechism and some internet apologetics sites and have a give and take discussion regarding, Mary and the Saints, Where the Bible came from and tonite, Faith and Works.
So far it has been a small group between 3-4 people, but I am thankful that some Protestants have expressed interest in what Catholics actually believe. My greatest regret is leaving the Catholic Church before I ever understood what it is they believed. I am thankful for the opportunity to hopefully dispel the misconceptions that people have about the Catholic faith. It also gives me the opportunity to learn more about my faith! Pray for the Holy Spirit to grant wisdom and understanding to my wife and I as well as all those who attend.
"St. Frances DeSales, you were so instrumental in leading many Protestants back to the Church. Please pray to the Lord for wisdom for us and understanding for the hearers."
