Christian LeBlanc's Summapalooza, Class 1: "Spirit and Stuff"

We are very pleased to begin today a catechetical series which uses the Bible to teach the Catholic faith.  The series of talks is presented by one of the Church's foremost catechists and evangelizers,  Christian LeBlanc.  His Summapalooza presentations offer profound insights into Holy Scripture and the doctrines of the Church and will profoundly enrich your spiritual life. Summapalooza was part of an adult education program offered by Saint Mary's Catholic Church in Greenville, South Carolina.

Christian LeBlanc is a revert whose pre-Vatican II childhood was spent in South Louisiana, where he marinated in a Catholic universe and acquired a Catholic imagination. During his middle school years in South Carolina, Christian was catechized under the benevolent dictatorship of Sister Mary Alphonsus, who frequently admonished him using the nickname “Little Pagan.” After four years of teaching Adult Ed and RCIA, he returned to Sr. Alphonsus’ old classroom to teach Catechism himself. This is his 12th year of teaching sixth grade.

Married to Janet, the LeBlancs have five children and two grandsons. He is the author of the highly acclaimed The Bible Tells Me So: A Year of Catechizing Directly from Scripture, on which these talks are based.
