Welcome to WHY@Breakfast!

I love to learn and to discover with others on how to deepen our relationship with Christ!

A few years ago, while sipping my coffee in a local cafe on a Saturday morning, I saw a few fellow parishioners who were enjoying their cup of Joe, reading the local paper.  I had this aha moment of why weren’t we all sitting in our church Parish Centre, sharing information with each other?

As a cradle Catholic, I have always felt that I adopted a lot of “traditions” without asking, going along with the motions.  I am pretty sure there are meanings behind a lot of those traditions.  If they were taught to me when I was in elementary school, I am sorry to say I did not retain much from those years.  I was also confident that I was not the only Catholic in this predicament of ignorance.  If professionals need to take courses or attend seminars for continuing education points for the renewal of their status every year, it makes sense to me that Catholics should have some good system for their “continuing education.”

In December of 2011, with the question “Why does the church talk about Mary if Jesus is our Savior?”, I organized the first WHY@Breakfast talk in Waterloo, Ontario.  It was a very enjoyable experience where everyone learned something new, cleared some myths, and all the while having a good breakfast!

I hope WHY@Breakfast presentations and events may be useful for us to build our relationships with Christ. Some presentations under the label WHYforChristians are suitable for all Christians.  Other presentations from WHY@Breakfast will focus on Catholic church teachings or perspectives on current Catholic Church issues.

I hope you will join me at a WHY@Breakfast event soon!

It’s fun to learn and it’s so much more enjoyable to learn with others!

Peace,

Therese
