Whereas several New Testament letters were addressed to specific individuals or communities, others were more “catholic” or “universal” in nature. These “Catholic Letters” were written to strengthen Christian communities scattered across a wide region of the Roman Empire rather than a specific Christian community. The letters of James, 1 and 2 Peter, and Jude contain profound differences; yet they also contain intriguing similarities. More than anything, they address specific issues facing the early Church as it wrestles with how to understand God and Jesus Christ and how to live as Christians in an increasingly hostile world.

Catholic Basics
These 30-minute videos cover basic areas of Catholic belief and practice.

Bible Study on the Gospel of Matthew
Sessions will last approximately 30 minutes and will cover a chapter at a time.

Since the Gospel of Matthew is the gospel we’ll hear throughout the year,
it’s our hope that this study of the words and teachings of Jesus as presented
by Matthew will enrich our hearing of the Gospel message — helping us better
understand and experience the voice of Jesus speaking to us today just as
powerfully as it did for the community for whom the Gospel was first written.


When we offered this study “in person” at the beginning of the year

we had 150 participants. Now, through the wonders of technology,

we can reach even more people — fulfilling Jesus’ command

to preach the Good News to the ends of the world!
