SCHOOL OF RELIGION
In 2016 the general topic on Wednesday evenings is marriage and salvation. In conjunction, the Prayer Book Society is holding a two-part seminar on family and marriage featuring Roberta Bayer, editor of Mandate published by PBS & assistant professor at Patrick Henry University, and Anthony Esolen, professor at Providence & senior editor of Touchstone, a journal of Mere Christianity. Dr. Bayer will speak Friday, October 28 at 7 PM and Dr. Esolen will speak Saturday, October 29 at 10 AM. All are welcome to all events.
During the month of October the School of Religion meets weekly to offer adult level instruction on selected topics. In past years, there were courses in the early Church Fathers and the creeds. In October 2014, the course was a combination of how Christians use music for worship and of how to sing some of the important musical forms, such as Gregorian and Anglican chant as well as traditional hymns.
LENTEN FAMILY NIGHTS
From the second until the final Wednesday in Lenten we meet at 6 PM for a light meal of homemade bread and soup, a short time of worship and hymn singing and a time of study and discussion, usually guided by a video curriculum. We finish by 8 PM and childcare is available.
On most Sundays, the rector offers teaching courses following the 10 AM Sunday worship service and the hospitality time. It is an opportunity for light refreshment, fellowship, and learning more about the Christian faith. Currently we are studying the great hymns of the Church.
Running from mid-September through Pentecost, All Saints' Church offers classes for children at 9 AM so that children can also attend one of the Sunday morning worship services.
On most Sundays, professional child care is available during the 10 AM worship service for infants and small children.
Catechesis classes are offered for those preparing for the Apostolic Laying on of Hands in Confirmation or who desire a refresher course in Christian/Anglican basics. Classes will normally last for several months and will cover the basic themes of the Persons of the Trinity, the Incarnation, teaching, atoning death, resurrection and ascension of our Lord, the Bible and salvation history, the three Creeds, the life of virtue, and the basic disciplines of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Confirmation is currently administered by the Rt. Rev. Donald Parson under the Episcopal House of Bishops' Delegated Episcopal Pastoral Oversight agreement.
