A Saturday morning (7:30am) discussion group for men of all ages which provides adult catechesis through a review of the Church's teachings and doctrine from the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church. These two foundation documents are considered in discussion of current social and global issues ranging from abortion, just war, taxes and sexuality . . . and numerous others. Free coffee, donuts and opinions.
