How is Catholic doctrine woven into JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings? This question will be explored here on 13th October, the Family Catechism Day, as seminarian Thomas gives a presentation on the subject for the under 18s catechism class (i.e. for children of any age). He will continue the theme on the subsequent Family Catechism Days--Thursday 17 November and Thursday 15 December.
All families are welcome. Bring a picnic lunch for 1pm (following the 12:10 Holy Mass). Catechism begins at 2pm.
Meanwhile for the parents class (2:30pm) Fr Mawdsley will continue to examine the summary sections of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. These cover Sacred Scripture (CCC 134-141) on 13 October; Faith (CCC 176-184) on 17 November; and the beginning of the Creed (CCC 228-231) on 15 December.
