Venue: Unity Hall, Barton Scouts and Guides, Sharpenhoe Road, Barton-le-Clay, MK45 4SD. For sat navs, please use the postcode, MK45 4LQ, rather than “Unity Hall”, or else you’ll be led to the entrance on Sharpenhoe Road which isn’t accessible for cars.

Catechism Day–Sunday at Christ the King

A reminder that tomorrow–Sunday–is Catechism Day at Christ the King. The programme can be seen here.

The aim is to cover 2,000 years of Church History in 20-30 minutes (for each age group). Such a task is possible by considering the Saints through the centuries, and the way they characterised various epochs in the life of the Church. (See the scheme below.)

There is now a flood of confusion and evil coursing through the Church. To remain on the Rock Who is Christ, we are assisted by knowing the Saints, knowing Church history, knowing Who the Church is.
