Join us for Adult Faith Formation this fall: Fulton Sheen & Flannery O’Connor

Join Bishop Barron on a journey to unlock the truth behind the Catholic Church’s most influential people. This NEW installment in the best-selling Pivotal Players video series focuses on two incredible figures from the 20th century, Fulton Sheen and Flannery O’Connor.

Cardinal Fulton Sheen (3-part series)

(Tuesdays, Oct. 1, 8 and 15 or Sundays, Oct. 6, 20 and 27)
Long before the internet and social media, Fulton Sheen pioneered Catholic evangelization through the media. At a time when most preachers spoke only from pulpits, Sheen used electronic media as a means to reach far beyond the parish walls. His innovative radio and television programs, beamed out to believers and skeptics alike, reached upwards of 30 million people per week. Sheen had a gift for spreading the faith clearly and persuasively, and he paved the path for today’s media evangelists.Flannery O’Connor’s influence on contemporary culture, particularly literature and film, is profound.

Flannery O’Connor (2-part series)

(Tuesdays, Oct. 22 and 29 or Sundays, Nov. 3 and 10)
Flannery O’Connor’s novels and short stories have been described as shocking, convoluted, funny, and violent, and they are filled with unforgettably strange characters. But they are also, from beginning to end, haunted by Christ. O’Connor radically changes our idea of what religious fiction can be. Her startling prose awakens us to sin and, consequently, to the need for salvation.
