Why do we need the Church?


“…you may know how one ought to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and bulwark of the truth.” -1 Timothy 3:15

In his third talk at IMS 2013, Drake McCalister establishes St Peter as the rock on which the Church is built; and explains that the Church identifies and keeps the truth without change.


Drake McCalister is assistant professor in catechetics at the Franciscan University of Steubenville in the United States of America.

The sixth Immaculata Mission School was held at St Thomas Beckett Parish in Lewisham, Australia from 1-14 of January 2013. The Mission School is organised and run by the Immaculata Community in Sydney.
