This 28 week course studies one chapter each week. It takes a leisurely pace that does not require very much weekly reading and yet it allows you to reach varying levels of deeper study, according to how much you want to commit. Because it covers only one chapter a week, it is very easy to catch up should you miss a class or classes.
Classes Between the Masses is back for Spring 2014 sessions. All classes are held in the Sarto Center from 9:15 - 10:15. The schedule presents topics in a two phase approach: first focusing on preparation for Lenten prayer life and then during Lent increasing our knowledge of our Saints.
The first session was February 9 with Dr.Norman McCrummen who presented The Imitation of Christ by Thomas a Kempis as an ideal Lenten devotional. Dr. McCrummen was excellent as always.
