Adult Education

On the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th Thursday of the month we meet at 6:00 pm to “Discover” and “Discuss” Orthodox Christianity.

We do not meet on the 3rd Thursday evenings of the month because that is when our monthly Parish Council meets.

Topics have varied from season to season. We have had Bible Studies, Book Readings, and Catechetical sessions.

During Autumn 2022 and Winter 2023 we have been studying the Divine Liturgy, our principal community Worship Service.

Anyone is welcome to join us on the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th Thursday evenings of the month at 6:00 pm for our Study Group.

You can join us at any point; there is no need to attend all sessions!
