It is challenging to share the Catholic Faith in our modern times. This class on Apologetics and the New Evangelization will give you the tools to explain to an unbelieving world why the Faith is and remains credible. It will help empower you to share the light of the Gospel with confidence as you grow in love for Jesus Christ.


  • How to argue for the credibility of the Resurrection.
  • How to effectively use the apologetical principles of pathos, ethos, and logos.
  • How to defend the historical reality of Jesus Christ.
  • How you can strengthen your Faith and take an active role in the New Evangelization.
