Are Catholics Born-again? Dcn. Hyde has the answers.

Are Catholics “born-again”? Are Catholics saved? What do non-Catholic Christians mean by those questions? And how should Catholics answer?
Join us Monday, Oct. 8, as Deacon Randy Hyde draws from his experience as a former Baptist to explain how to dialogue with our Protestant family and friends on these important questions.
The free Back-to-Basics lecture will be at 5:30 pm at the Family Life Center (1220 W. Dardeau St., Ville Platte). Everyone is invited.
