The history of the Catholic Church in the United States
The Spanish Missions in the west . . . the French Jesuits in the Northeast . . . unfortunately had little significance.
And so we begin in Colonial times . . beyond who did what, where and when . . . We will probe how this American culture of democracy . . . freedom . . . (especially of religion). . .individualism, interacted with a church hanging onto a European model of governance and of piety.
How has the American culture influenced the Church? This will be the focus of our sessions.
Join Fr. George Kane on the following Monday Evenings from 7:00 p.m. –8:30 p.m. September 14 & 28, October 12 & 26, and November 5, 2015.
