"A Christian who does not know the bible is like someone with tools and does not know how to use them." 
- Fr. Carver W. Israel

The Christian Education Committee 
The Christian Education Committee has discerned that on Sundays it would be most appropriate to dedicate one full hour for learning and that all activities related to learning or faith formation occur concurrently. So, as previously announced the learning hour will be from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm starting March 6, 2016. 

Young people are encouraged to attend service with their families to participate in the Liturgy and receive their blessings/communion.

Don’t forget that the resources of the Christian Learning Center are available on Sundays after service.
