October 18 (Wednesday) – Challenging Faith – Honest Answers for Tough Questions.

Challenging Faith is a series of evening discussions for asking tough questions and getting straight answers. Young people have honest doubts and questions about belief in God, the Catholic faith and the truth of the Bible, especially in relation to science.  We offer to engage these tough questions and offer as straight-forward answers as possible from the perspective of the Catholic faith and centuries of Church wisdom. We may not have all the answers, but we promise honest ones.

Topic for the evening:

  • Why would Jesus have to die on the cross?

  • Are other religions true, or is the Catholic faith the only way?

We welcome all respectful questions, and will do our best to provide a clear understanding that provides meaning and direction for ourselves and for billions of other Catholics. Some answers may surprise you, though you might not like them. Then again, maybe you will.  But, you won’t know until you ask.

Join us at 6:30 pm at

Black Labrador Pub
4100 Montrose Blvd.
Houston, Texas 77006
(appetizers will be served)

September 19 (Tuesday) – Catholic Healthcare Professionals of Houston

Join us for a presentation: A New Community: Medical Mission in Guatemala.

Rev. Linda L. McCarty is the president and CEO of Faith In Practice, a national ecumenical Christian not-for-profit that sends volunteer medical teams to Guatemala. Each year more than 1,200 U.S. and 900 Guatemalan volunteers provide medical, surgical, and dental care to the poor of Guatemala through Faith In Practice. These teams serve more than 25,000 people on an annual basis, emphasizing continuity of care within the context of short-term medical mission. Faith In Practice’s network of care begins in the remote villages in clinics established to treat patients with the greatest need and least access to care. Patients requiring surgery are guided through the entire process—accompanied to one of Faith In Practice’s partner hospitals, provided with room and board as they heal in one of the patient guest houses, and accompanied safely home. This integrated approach to healthcare is designed to treat the entire person, not only as a patient, but as a brother or sister in Christ.
