Journey Toward Baptism
Catechumenate – Introduces Christianity to adults and older children contemplating the sacrament of baptism. It is a journey of questioning, education and contemplation. After consultation with the Rector, a catechumen begins this journey on the first Sunday in Advent, continuing each Sunday through Lent. The culmination of this journey for many catechumens is baptism at the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday. Catechists currently include John Hsieh, Peter Schmidt and Paulette O’Malley. Contact Father Mallory or one of the catechists.
The Adult Study Group, led by Peter Schmidt, meets on Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. in the Womble Library. Topics vary throughout the year.
Additional classes are offered seasonally by the Rector and others.
Our Book Club, spearheaded by Fran Coleman, meets most Tuesdays, 5:00 – 6:30 PM in Smith Parish Center. The books chosen focus on a variety of justice issues, in the U.S. and around the world.
The Climate Change Forum series features climate scientists from the University of Arizona and elsewhere. Four of these have been held over the last several years.
