A quick search of the internet shows that ‘Catholic Apologetics’ is once again a very hot topic. In a world of instantaneous communication, people want answers to pressing questions about the rights and wrongs, the truths and falsehoods, of the various ‘life options’ and ‘philosophies of life’ that jostle for our attention.

But, as ever, we are called by the Holy Spirit to give an answer to the varied questions we are asked. As St Peter writes, ‘Always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks the reason for the hope that is in you’ (1 Peter 3:15).

In this summer school we will look at ways of responding in Christ’s love to some of the questions which arise for Catholics today.
