Course Description

At Confirmation we became soldiers for Christ, fully initiated members of the Church Militant. As such, we are obliged to readily and charitably defend our Mother, the Church, whenever she is attacked. Can you do this? This class will equip you to win any argument without cheating; defend your faith without being defensive (or offensive!); use your sword and shield (the Bible and faith) together effectively; stump your anti-Catholic brother-in-law this Thanksgiving with "Jesus Judo"; be unapologetic when you apologize (give reasons for your beliefs).
