Fulfilled   Uncovering the Biblical Foundations of Catholicism

From September 10, 2018  Seven weeks on Mondays, 7:00 PM St Francis Room,  Book and Workbook set $25. RSVP to Tom Toschik @


Have you ever been unable to explain the “why” of Catholic beliefs? Have you ever wondered why the Old Testament sounds so different from the New Testament? In the Old Testament, God began building a plan and laying a foundation for the beautiful traditions of the Catholic Faith. That plan was fulfilled by Jesus in the New Testament. 

Fulfilled explores the biblical roots of the Catholic Faith. It uncovers God’s consistent design for our worship of him and his relationship with us. Learn how the Old Testament Tabernacle can be used as a blueprint for the Catholic Faith and how Jesus fulfilled it in the New Testament.


Plan to attend all of the meetings, but know that you can occasionally miss a meeting and still stay with the program.  The courses are very flexible.
