Students have said: "I wondered how I could sit through a 3 hour lecture when I began my study.  I thought I would fall asleep.  But the time just flew by- the classes were interactive, engaging and fun.  I made great friends and have a much greater understanding of the beauty of my Catholic faith.  I am thinking of doing more study!"
