Symbolon Series: The Catholic Faith Explained

The Diocese of Waterford & Lismore presents Symbolon: The Catholic Faith Explained. Too often we try to live a faith we don’t know or understand. Every Catholic deserves to know their story. Join us for Symbolon, a 10-week series that presents the BIG picture of our Catholic faith, with the Creed as our guide.

The course will run on Wedesday nights beginning September 15th from 8 – 9.15pm.  The course is open to anyone in the diocese, aged 18+ and is free of charge. All are welcome!
