Catechumenate (Episcopal 101)

Led by: Father Delaney

Location: Chapel of the Resurrection (Downstairs in the Cathedral)

Date and time: Sundays, March 5th through April 2nd, 2017 from 12:30pm to 2:00pm

The Catechumenate (Episcopal 101) is an immersive experience in Christian faith and practice. Are you interested in asking the questions you never thought you could ask? Curious about the basic teachings of the Christian faith, and what difference they might make in your life? Want to learn more about the Sacraments and the worship life of the Church? Want to know more about the life of prayer that God intends and desires for each of us? The Catechumenate is meant for you. And your spiritual growth is the goal. 

Each week we will gather for a simple meal, hear a talk on one of the central questions of the Christian faith, and then join in a discussion. Through both listening and sharing, we will wrestle with those foundational questions in the context of faith and in the company of fellow seekers. This process is for adults who would like to be received or confirmed in the Episcopal Church at the Easter Vigil, as well as those who would simply like a refresher course. A light lunch will be provided.

Lenten Series: Breathing Under Water by Richard Rohr

Led by: Dean Sniffen

Location: Mercer School of Theology

Date and time: Wednesdays, March 8th through March 29th, 2017 from 7pm to 9pm

The Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous is America's most significant and authentic contribution to the history of spirituality, says Richard Rohr. He makes a case that the Twelve Steps relate well to Christian teaching and can rescue people who are drowning in addiction and may not even realize it. To survive the tidal wave of compulsive behavior and addiction, Christians must learn to breathe under water and discover God's love and compassion. In this exploration of Twelve Step spirituality, Rohr identifies the Christian principles in the Twelve Steps and connects them with the Gospel. This series, offered during the weeks of Lent is appropriate for all and offers Twelve Step spirituality as a way to engage the life of faith more deeply wherever you are on life's journey. 

A limited number of Richard Rohr's book will be available at the Cathedral office and at the back of the Cathedral after Sunday services.
