Catholicism & Coffee
Are you already a confirmed Catholic who still has questions about the Catholic Church and living its teaching? That’s great! Understanding and growing in the Catholic Faith is a lifelong process. Every Catholic has questions and concerns along the way. And it may take some action or searching on your part to learn what the Church teaches, why she teaches it, and how you can better practice the faith. Catholicism & Coffee is a speaker series that is usually held twice a month to help students better understand Catholic teaching and practice. It is for anyone and everyone who would like to learn more about Catholicism. Students are invited to attend just one session or as many as they would like. There is a four year curriculum so students that take advantage of the sessions will gain a good foundation and solid teaching on virtually every major aspect of Church teaching over their four years at Duke.
The mission of Catholicism & Coffee is to offer regular catechesis opportunities through which Duke Catholic students and interested members of the Duke community can learn about key elements of the Catholic faith and discuss applications in their daily lives. We strive to engage students through active listening, learning, and discussion.
We approach this mission by hosting talks from experts or having guided discussions with an expert present to answer questions. For more information, please contact Kelly Schuering.
Every semester, the Duke Catholic Center social activities coordinators plan and host a number of different social events. Past events include ice skating, Defy Gravity outings, baking parties, game nights, and Cookout runs! Check out the upcoming events (salsa dancing lessons & Spring semi-formal, to name a couple!) by joining the DCC’s Facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/groups/dukecatholic/
