Adult Education

Please join Deacon Paul for our first adult education series of the year. Sessions will be held on Sunday November 1, 8 & 15 from 11:00-11:45AM in the church. Our topic will be the Sacraments. The first Sunday we will begin with an overview of sacramental theology: What is a sacrament? Why do we need them? What makes a sacrament valid? The second session will look at the specifics of the seven sacraments, and the final session will be a discussion of how to make the sacraments fruitful in our lives.
