Sunday,  October 21-Tuesday, October 23

"Joy is not so much about feelings and emotions.


Happiness can come from eating ice cream or winning the lottery. It’s external. Joy is internal, flowing from inside oneself outward."

“Why Be Catholic?”

In this powerful and inspiring presentation, Catholic evangelist Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers will address the following questions asked by many fallen away Catholics: “Why should I listen to a Church that makes all of these rules that inhibit my freedom to do what I want?” and “What’s the big deal about being Catholic and why does it matter?” After examining the truth and beauty of Divine Revelation, Deacon Harold will show how we unite ourselves to Jesus in an intimate and personal way through the sacraments and how we can spread the Gospel by the witness of our lives.

“The Pursuit of Happiness: Finding True Joy in the Catholic Faith”

On Monday, we will learn the difference between “true happiness” and “feeling good.” Discover the ideological factors that hinder and impede the pursuit of happiness; examine the relationship between the Holy Spirit’s Gift of Knowledge and the desire for happiness; and how true spiritual joy is found in obeying God’s will.

Tuesday, October 23

“My Flesh for the Life of the World: The Eucharist and Evangelization”

Finally, Deacon Harold will examine how Reconciliation and the Eucharist are the fruits of our Heavenly Father’s divine mercy, and the source of our interior transformation and conversion from sin. He will also show how the Holy Spirit in the Sacrament of Reconciliation brings us closer to Christ in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Eucharist.
