The Catholic Church has a very rich theological tradition. However, this tradition is sometimes not truly understood by Catholics and not truly shared with others who are not Roman Catholics.

We won’t get technical – just enough introduction in each session to get us thinking. Responses of participants to the topic of the session are so very welcome. We can all help each other. Questions? Please contact Richard Lohkamp, firstname.lastname@example.org
