Catholic Answers has led the way in Catholic cruising for a decade, and we think our forthcoming Caribbean Cruise will be one of our best. The special focus of this cruise will be defending the Catholic faith, something all of us are going to need to get better at in the days to come.
Whether you are the one teaching the RCIA class or the one sitting in the back of the room, this is the cruise for you. Our apologists can arm you with the knowledge and the methods that you need to answer the challenges you encounter to your Catholic faith - on any topic, from the basic to the advanced.
We've handpicked some of the top, most vibrant apologists in the country for this cruise: Our own Tim Staples and Matt Fradd, along with special guests Steve Ray, Patrick Madrid, and Fr. Larry Richards. These first rate speakers will help you:
- Learn to defend your faith using the Bible, the Church Fathers, and the official documents of the Church.
- Explore the link between faith and reason so you can confront the militant atheism sweeping our society.
- Practice debating skills that few outside the world of professional apologetics know.
I'll also be speaking. I'm Christopher Check, Catholic Answers' new Director of Development. You may have read my Church history articles in our magazine or heard my CD set on the battle of Lepanto. On the cruise, I'll be defending the Church against the charges that the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition are events for which we Catholics need to apologize.
Our ship for this cruise, Royal Caribbean's spectacular Oasis of the Seas is a perfect combination of elegance and festivity. Our itinerary will showcase the gems of the eastern Caribbean. The week will be one of great food and conversation, lively presentations, and, best of all, companionship with fellow Catholics who share your love of and interest in the Faith.
We look forward to seeing you onboard,
Director of Development, Catholic Answers
