This week we change gears significantly and enter the final section of this series of Catholic adult faith formation titled, “The Church in the Modern World.

This final section of the class will focus on the relationship between the Church and the State. This week we will begin with the foundation of the relationship between Church and State. In the coming weeks we will address a series of specific topics.
