During Christmas Mass Father Peter started his 4 part series on “The Big Story” or the kerygma. You may be wondering what is this? Why do we need it?

“The reality is that many Catholics have been catechized without ever truly being evangelized. They have been presented with the teachings of the Catholic faith, without ever having been introduced to the person of Christ.”

“The kerygma — the proclamation of the Good News — is not a ‘traditional’ custom or a certain ‘social practice.’ The kerygma is the joyful announcement that Jesus Christ is a living Person to be encountered, who through his Resurrection has defeated sin and death.”

Here is a great article explaining it a bit more and also take a look at the book that Father is using as a reference!
