About the Study:
Discover the amazing story of the first 500 years of Church historyÂ—a time filled with courageous saints, brilliant philosophers, eloquent theologians, ruthless emperors, and heroic martyrs. Blessed John Paul II said, "Christ is the foundation and center of history, he is its meaning and ultimate goal." This exciting study program encourages people to grow closer to Christ through a deeper understanding of His Church.
Offering your parishioners this study is the perfect way to inspire them to a greater appreciation for the Catholic Church and for the role they can play as vibrant members of the parish community.
Your Group will:
•Discover the major people, places, and events of the first 500 years of Church history.

•Recognize the Early Christian Church as the Catholic Church.
•...And much more!
