Class 5 – “A Firm Foundation” with Msgr. Michael Witt

Class Five: Hymns, Tombs and Holy Mass and Sunday, Christmas and Easter

A short conclusion to this course, tying up threads on dating on major feast days. Msgr. Witt also takes some Q&A.

The eight Fathers explored in this course are quoted 170 times in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

As a bonus, we explore early Christian burial practices and come to appreciate the importance of Sunday Mass, Easter and Christmas and why Catholics should observe each of them.

Over the last several months, we connected with just a few young adults who have found a home in an Emmaus group. We asked them about their stories of how they joined Emmaus groups, why they make their group a priority with many daily obstacles, and why they would recommend YOU join a group! Find inspiration and hear their stories below!
