For those who want to become acquainted with the Catholic faith
In February 2019 the Roman Catholic Parish of St. Vitus in Leeuwarden will start a catechetical course for non-Dutch speaking: ‘Being Catholic, Not That Crazy’. In other words: to become a Catholic, not a bad idea.
This basic course is designed for non-Catholics who are interested in discovering what the Catholic faith entails. It is also for those who are already Catholic but want to re-discover and deepen their faith. This catechesis offers you an introduction to and deepening of the Catholic faith, in order to grow in knowledge and spirituality. The course consists subjects as: Creation, God’s Incarnation in Jesus of Nazareth, the salvation in Jesus Christ Son of God, the Sacraments and of course the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
This catechetical course can be concluded by receiving the sacrament of Baptism, the sacrament of Confirmation and the sacrament of the Eucharist. In case you are already baptised within another Christian denomination, you can become a Catholic by receiving the sacraments of Confirmation and the Eucharist. There is no obligation to receive the sacraments at the end of the course.
The catechesis is given by Father Stiekema. The costs are a onetime payment of € 10,-. The course starts at 8.00 pm on Monday’s at the Titus Brandsma Huis, Bonifatiusplein 21, 8911 JT in Leeuwarden and is scheduled for the following dates: 25/2, 4/3, 11/3, 18/3, 25/3, 1/4, 15/4, 6/5, 13/5 and 20/5.
