A Powerful Father, A Loving Creator
I’m quite excited to invite you to register in the second session of our Vitamin CCC, an online class on the Catechism of the Catholic Church!
I remember that day when my brother wrote me an e-mail in which he was asking me help about a question from his son. The boy was about 6 years old then and during breakfast, he suddenly turned to his Dad and asked, still with hot chocolate on his lips… “Dad, who is the father of God the Father?” What could we answer to this boy? Certainly not by saying: “Just finish your bread, it’s time to go to school now, we’ll see that later!” My nephew asked something very important and as much as he could receive, his Dad had to try to share some light…I’m sure that many parents have similar stories to tell.
So we are, with many questions about our Faith! In this class we’ll explore this part of the catechism that speaks about God who is Father and Creator. It’s the beginning of the Creed. How important it is today to know more about our Heavenly Father! Regarding the Creator, we may have also many questions: is it really in 7 days that the world was made? What about the evolution? Do Angels really exist?
One more thing: don’t think that you won’t be able to understand…! As a child of God, He has given you His Spirit so that you’ll believe and receive His Light! It’s not about academics and IQ. Maybe also you think that you don’t have a strong faith, and this is for “legendary gamers”, those who pray and go to Church always…No, there is no “level 10” here, your questions are more important than what you know already! Maybe your doubts and difficulties to believe can lead you to become closer to God.
Let us grow together in Faith!
This will give you an idea of the topics we’ll cover during this 2d session:
October 3: One Faith in One God, the implications of believing in One true God
October 10: Jesus-Christ, you and me we have One Father
October 17: Three-in-One….what does it mean? The Trinity
October 24: Creation and Providence
October 31: God made… Stars, Beasts, Angels, Man and Woman
November 7: Man has fallen…
Vitamin CCC 2d session will start October 3, 2020 at 8pm until November 7. Every Saturday evening by videoconference 8 to 9.30pm.
Registration fee: 600php / 500php for those who participated to the 1st session.

Welcome to Our Online Class on the Catechism of the Catholic Church!
The situation in which we are living, asks us to find new ways to preach and help others in their faith.
It also requires everyone to be solidly grounded in faith, because of unprecedented challenges we are facing ahead.
That is why the Brothers of St John in Cebu decided to open an online class, using video conference, with a cycle of 6 weekly sessions.
We choose to study together the Catechism of the Catholic Church, because it is a rich resource that can help us to know more and understand what we believe.
Catechism comes from a Greek word that initially meant “to echo” or “to resonate”. It was used since then by the early Christians, to speak about the training of converts, so that the Word of God can “resonate” in their hearts and minds, and of course in their lives. We hope that the Word can still resonate through our new technologies!
In the first series, we’ll study together the beginning of the Catechism, which speaks about what is to believe, about God who revealed Himself to us, and about our search for Him. It is a fascinating teaching that goes straight to the core of our faith!
The format of this program is that of a class, with a number of participants limited to 20. Don’t wait for a long time to register. Readings and assignments will be given to the participants to assess their progression. Don’t worry. We will not be at a highly academic level, but we expect the participants to be well motivated to go through the class.
Thank you so much for all those who registered for the first series of Vitamin CCC. We’re excited to start this class with you!
Registration is now closed for this first series but we look forward to accept new attendees for the next one.
Stay tuned! Stay safe!
Have you experienced this situation? You got a new Smartphone, but you feel very dumb because you don’t know yet how to use it. This might apply also for us when we are in front of the CCC. That is why we will try to understand how it works to become even smarter in reading it.
“Faith!” I guess the first thing which came to your mind was God, Jesus, or complicated words like Incarnation, Resurrection etc. But did you ever ask the question, what is faith? What are we doing when we believe? In season one of Vitamin CCC, we are going to make a step backwards in order to make big step forward for humanity. We will try to tackle questions like: Am I capable of knowing God? Does he make himself known to me? If yes how? Did you ever reply to a message from God? Maybe not, because you did not yet know the APP-Ostolic tradition?
CCC – How does this thing work man?
You aren’t capable of God! – Challenge? Accepted!
Hey Man! I wanna meet you!
