Since 2015, St. Anthony of Padua has offered the Catholic Christian Outreach (CCO) Faith Studies Series to parishioners and anyone interested in growing in faith and love for God. The study series endeavours to bring people to Christ, build them up as Catholic Christians, and equip and send them out to reach others. Three times per year, the parish runs all five levels of studies, each of which explains truths and principles of the Catholic faith through scripture and small group discussion. Typically, the studies are held on Tuesday evenings at two times: 6:15 pm and 8:15 pm, with evening Mass in between sessions at 7:30 pm.
The first level, Discovery leads you through a simple but personally challenging look at the Gospel message. It will allow you to strengthen your relationship with Jesus, grow in fellowship with other parishioners and learn how to share your faith with others. It is a 6-week series, usually 1-1.5 hours in length led by a facilitator and includes lively discussion with fellow group members. Discovery is the first of a series of five faith studies developed by Catholic Christian Outreach.
