Adult Christian Education: An Outline of the Faith | The Rev. Peter J. Van Hook

In The Book of Common Prayer there is a wonderful resource called “An Outline of the Faith (commonly called the Catechism).” Unlike most catechisms it is not meant to be memorized. It is instead intended to be used as a discussion starter, as well as a reminder of important elements of our faith and practice.

Beginning on Wednesday, April 8, I will be offering an eight-week series of conversations based in “An Outline of the Faith.” This is a great opportunity to review and remember for current members, and a great introduction for those new or unfamiliar with The Episcopal Church. Topics to be covered include the nature of God, the role of the Bible in Anglican practice, the Church and its ministries, and the Christian Hope.

We especially encourage adults who are preparing for Baptism or Confirmation to attend this series. Recognizing the Wednesday evenings are not the best time for all, the series will be offered during the year at various times
