CLASS IN ADVENT ON THE INCARNATION, WEDNESDAYS, NOV. 30th – Dec. 21
The text for this class will be St. Athanasius’ monumental work, “The Incarnation of the Word of God.” Here we have a positive summary of the faith, written by an apologist heavyweight both of his own era of the 300’s AD and that of our own. This class is a wonderful way to make good on the call of Advent in preparing to welcome anew the Incarnate Lord into our lives strengthening our understanding of the “faith once delivered.” The class consists of 3 sessions, held Wednesdays, 7:00 – 8:00 pm. Speak to Fr. Hines for more information.
