Sundays, 10:00 A.M. to 10:45 A.M., Draesel Hall
Mark your calendars and join us when you can.

Feb 4, and 11: Episcobasics
What does it mean to be an Episcopalian? An Anglican? Are we Protestants or Catholics? (spoiler alert: Both!)

February 18 through March 18: Exploring the Gospel of Mark
This Lent, we notice the Sunday Gospels are mostly from Mark. Our Lenten Devotional moves us through Mark, and on Sunday mornings, we'll spend time exploring Mark's Gospel primarily through the book, Meeting God in Mark: Reflections for the Season of Lent by Rowan Williams.
 
March 1, 8, and 15: St. Bonaventure's Tree of Life in Art & Spirituality

Father Beddingfield will be teaching this three-week course.  Registration is necessary through St. Francis of Assisi.

April 8, 15, 22, and 29: Getting to Know our Neighbors
We’ll discuss major works of art found in neighboring museums and churches.

May 6, 13, 20, and 27: The Virgin Mary: Handmaiden or Mother of God?               
We’ll use scripture and tradition to explore the place of the Virgin Mary in Christian spirituality and practice.
