Inquirers Class – An Introduction to the Episcopal Church

Starting on June 28th and for the next six to eight Sundays St. Anna’s will host An Inquirers Class. This class affords the learner an opportunity to learn about the Episcopal Church. In a survey of topics we will investigate the history and origins of the Episcopal Church. Did really start because King Henry wanted a divorce? We will review and talk about the sacraments of the church. How many are there and do we believe in transubstantiation? We will look at who we are as a church, a Diocese, a National Church, and international Denomination. Are we really that diverse? We will learn a bit about how we govern ourselves. Do we share leadership or are we lead? Inquiring minds may join the discussion and classes at any time. Even if you have been Confirmed you may still want to attend.

Classes held at St. Anna’s Church

Time:  9:00 a.m. -10:00 a.m.

Days:  Sundays before mass.

Out of pastoral considerations therefore we would like to consolidate our time and efforts. Therefore, we are (more…)
