Spiritus Series Learning Path: LA Congress

Woof Master
Access code required

All the faithful share in understanding and handing on the revealed truth. They have received the anointing of the Holy Spirit, who instructs them and guides them into all truth. (CCC, 91) The Spiritus Series digs deep into this statement and teaches us to live out our faith. It begins with the Pentecost story, then spotlights certain acts of the apostles, moves forward to the Sacraments (with increased deepening on Confirmation), then emphasizes the Spirit’s gifts and fruits, and finally ends with how we can bear Christian witness and become soldiers of Christ.

Here is the class outline:
