“When I received the email advertising the Adult Studies in Catechism of the Catholic Church my husband had just completed his year of discernment to the Permanent Diaconate. Having announced the news of his vocation to family and friends, I found myself being asked many questions about our Catholic faith. What really surprised me was the fact that when asked these questions, I was not totally sure of the correct answers. So the timing of this course seemed perfect. Having completed two years, I can honestly say it has been the best adult studies course I’ve ever attended. We have a great group including our spiritual director and facilitator.
I have completed the assignments for the four modules to date, and having attended the Study day with the Further Education Programme Director I now truly feel that I am a student of the Catechism and I really look forward to completing the final two assignments to qualify for the certificate.
The greatest gift I have received from doing this course is understanding the Holy Spirit’s guiding role in our lives. I can truly say that I entrust our future into the hands of the Holy Spirit and this gives me such strength as we joyously continue on the vocation that the Lord has called us.”
