Catholicism 201

Father James Mallon, a parish priest from the Archdiocese of Halifax, Canada, has created a course called Catholicism 201, which was originally designed as a follow-up course to Alpha in a Catholic parish context. This eight-session DVD resource is intended to directly follow the last talk of Alpha, ‘What About the Church?’ The talks cover topics such as ‘The Church’, ‘Sacraments and Sacraments of Initiation’, ‘Mary and the Saints’, ‘Introduction to Christian Morality’, ‘Sacraments of Healing’, ‘The Eucharist’, ‘The Thorny Issues’ and ‘Sacraments of Vocation’. 

This is an external course.

Filmed in more than 50 locations throughout 16 countries, the series is engaging and interesting, using art, architecture, literature, music and all the treasures of the Catholic tradition toilluminate the timeless teachings of the Church.

CaFE (Catholic Faith Exploration) and Christlife

CaFE (Catholic Faith Exploration), based in the UK, and Christlife, based in the US, have developed a range of video resources that maintain the small-group dynamic of Alpha while teaching more about the Catholic Church, such as ‘Knowing God Better’ (an introduction to the sacraments, prayer and scripture) and ‘Exploring the Catholic Church’ (includes teaching on why we need the Church, an explanation of the Mass, and Mary and the Saints). 

This is an external course.
