Make sure you have the pre-reads and have read them prior to each class.

The 7th Annual Summer School of Theology will be held the week of June 15 – 19th at Marywood in the Wisdom Center. Our focus this year will be on Saint Augustine…in particular his homilies, which tend to be down to earth and practical. Our presenter will be Augustinian friar Allan Fitzgerald the head of the Augustinian Institute at Villanova University. Registration information on www.dosaformation.org
This initiative, a collaboration of NCCL, NCEA, NFCYM, and NACFLM, created a simple 5 minute survey and have now shared the results in many different venues. The top 2 (by far) answers to the question, “What do you want the Church to hear?” are the following:
1 63% You are always welcome at our church.
2 54% How can the church help you/your family live out your faith in the world?
These are not surprising, but the sure % of respondents should give us pause as a Church…

Retreat with other Christian denominations during Lent. In this online retreat, you will find an elegantly simple space to reflect on your journey and find sustenance as you travel toward Easter. Intertwining reflection, art, music, and community, this retreat provides a distinctive opportunity to move through Lent in contemplation and conversation with others along the way.
Each week contains a GUIDE which should be read careful early in the week - hopefully on Sunday. Each Guide is meant to make a home in the background of our consciousness all week long. Read it on Sunday and we might want to read it once or twice more during the week to remember well its theme and the grace to be prayed for each week. Learn more
