March Course: This is Catholicism

Although March is still quite wintry in much of the U.S., it is bringing in the spiritually rejuvenating season of Lent. Ash Wednesday is on March 6th this year. Are you ready?

This month, we will continue with the popular series This is Catholicism featuring Father Philip Eldracher and a new host: his brother, Justin Eldracher. This is Catholicism follows the catechism by Father Joseph Deharbe, S.J., A Complete Catechism of the Catholic Religion. It is the catechism which Bishop Donald Sanborn finds to be most complete for conversion and instruction in the Faith. Eleven episodes will be released throughout the month of March, beginning on March 4th. This season will pick up where last season left off (Chapter 2, Ninth Article, section 4) and carry through to the end of the Apostles’ Creed.

All of the most recent episodes of True Restoration programming are accessible only to our members. In an effort to bring quality Catholic content to all who seek it, we will continue to offer Monthly Memberships. This season, these inexpensive memberships include access to all of the current season’s releases (please note that the previous season is no longer included). Enjoy our March series, This is Catholicism, by becoming a member today!
