CATHOLICISM Leader Kit (Blu-ray)
Journey around the world and deep into the Faith. Bishop Robert Barron created the groundbreaking CATHOLICISM ADULT STUDY PROGRAM as a thematic presentation of what Catholics believe and why, so all adults can come to a deeper understanding of the Catholic Faith. Not a video lecture, Church history, or scripture study, this engaging and interesting formational program uses the art, architecture, literature, music, and all the treasures of the Catholic tradition to illuminate the timeless teachings of the Church.
The CATHOLICISM Adult Study Program presents the strong, ecclesial dimension of the Catholic Faith – God’s revelation through Jesus Christ and His Church. It is comprehensive and faithful, appropriate for:
* Adult lay formation
* Training adult catechists
* Diaconate and other ministerial training
* Mature high school or college/university coursework
The CATHOLICISM Study Program Leader’s Kit includes:
1. The ten compelling episodes from the Catholicism Series in a Blu-ray box set. The box set includes five Blurays, each containing two episodes. Each episode runs 50-60 minutes. English and Spanish subtitles are included as viewing options.
2. The companion Leader’s Edition: Study Guide and Workbook, which includes extensive commentary on the theological content of each episode, plus “Questions for Understanding” (with suggested responses) and “Questions for Application.” The “Questions for Understanding” incorporate references from Scripture and from the Catechism of the Catholic Church to build on topics featured in the series. The “Questions for Application” help your group reflect on how Father Barron’s message is relevant to their lives and experiences. The study guide commentary and questions were written by Catholic author and Ignatius Press Blog Editor, Carl Olson, under the guidance and approval of Bishop Robert Barron. The Leader’s Guide also provides valuable direction on how to host and facilitate a group study in either 12 or 22 sessions.
3. Catholicism: A Journey to the Heart of the Faith, a book published by Random House/Image Division that is based on a more detailed rendering of the scripts from the DVD series and also includes photos from the filming locations.
4. A set of 40 prayer cards for the New Evangelization.
5. Special 15% discount on additional DVD box sets, so each member of your class can purchase their own CATHOLICISM DVD Box Set for their home library or as a gift. (OPTIONAL PURCHASE. Only the included DVD set is required to run the study program.)
6. Promotional materials to announce the upcoming program in your location (free downloads).
7. BONUS FREE GIFT: Bishop Barron’s Faith Clips DVD, a valuable reference took for any group leader. Faith Clips contains 50 most frequently-asked questions on the Catholic Faith and a clear, concise, video response from Bishop Barron on each one.
