This is our catalog of courses. We will occasionally adjust the course listing to reflect the addition of new courses and the retirement of others.
In this exciting course, students will encounter St. Paul himself live via Zoom every week! – or at least St. Paul as portrayed by Kevin O’Brien, professional actor, author of the play The Journey of St. Paul and host of EWTN’S The Theater of the Word TV show. Sign up and join us in this encounter with an Apostle that you won’t want to miss!
Meet the most dramatic of the apostles, Paul, as portrayed by Kevin O’Brien live each week in class! Paul will tell of his background, of his persecution of the Church, of his encounter with Christ Himself on the Road to Damascus. He will talk about his shipwrecks, his stonings, his imprisonment. And he will reveal the passionate love for God that he poured into his epistles.
The most important of the Apostles once hated Christ, persecuted Christians and tried to destroy the Church. But after he met the Risen Lord on the Road to Damascus, everything changed – and Paul became the most zealous of the early Christians, giving himself entirely to Christ – even to the point of martyrdom.
