Why is Baptism Important?

Why Do I need Church?

Some people enjoy attending church every week. Others, not so much. In this message, Bishop Hying illustrates the relationship between faith and belonging to a parish community. Based upon the Catechism of the Catholic Church (166).

For some it's a healthy habit. For others a mandatory routine. Then, others just do it occasionally... going to church on Sundays. Do we have to attend church to follow Jesus? Bishop Don has more in this C4! Based upon the Catechism of the Catholic Church (731).
