Tuesday, March 5: Spirituality Tuesday Assembly: Key Moments in the History of the Catholic Church
As Catholics, we are heirs to a remarkable heritage. A story 2000 years in the making, one word best describes Catholic history: EPIC. Join us Tuesday evening as Father Matt guides us on an amazing journey to discover the roots our Catholic faith.
With our host, Father Matt, we will learn about Protestors, Defenders and the Catholic Reformation.
Henry VIII, a former “Defender of the Faith” against Luther, finds his marriage vows uncomfortable. Who could predict where that would lead? Did you know that there are over 700 known and documented cases of Catholic martyrdom in England? Yet, the Church survived. The Ottoman Turks marauded through the Mediterranean. A miraculous event: A smaller Christian fleet of ships defeats 300 Muslim galleys in battle. True reform begins with Pope St. Pius V. Join Fr. Matt for the rest of the story!
