Dear friends in Christ

There will be two classes during the week of March 29:

1) Sunday at 10a,, Father Mead will speaks on the “prophecies” in the Great Vigil of Easter. The Easter Vigil is most comprehensive liturgy of the Christian year, and in fact baptisms throughout the year make reference to the Vigil’s themes. The class is on the 5th floor, and visitors are welcome. There will not be a Thursday repeat of this class on April 3.

2) On Tuesday, April 1, Father Spurlock will speak to the Christian Doctrine class on the sacraments of confirmation, marriage, and unction. The class meets in Andrew Hall at 6:30pm.

Looking ahead to the following week:

Christians Reading Greeks will discuss Sophocles’ play Antigone on Monday, April 7, from 6:15 to 7:45pm in Andrew Hall. This play is an ancient exploration of the origins of justice, and anyone who has read it is welcome to the conversation.

The “Ethical Wednesdays” class will next meet on April 9. I will be guiding the class through chapter 3 of Oliver O’Donovan’s Self, World, and Time. This chapter, on “Moral Communication,” is appropriately launched by a consideration of the role of the Holy Spirit in ethical resolutions. It also takes up the difference between advice and authority. The class is in Andrew Hall for one hour beginning at 6:30pm.
