Summer Reading: Faith and Literature
Join us for a twelve-week series starting June 7, on exploring faith through literature. Classes will be held via Zoom on Sundays from 9-9:45 a.m. You don't have to have read the literature work before each week's class. This is merely an introduction to each work and is meant to inspire you to look for faith in literature. All books are available for purchase in the Cathedral Bookstore.
Join Zoom Meeting at 9 a.m. Sunday

Sundays in Lent
Living out the Sermon on the Mount
Facilitators/Teachers: Owene Courtney, Rev. Dr. Bob Dannals, Michael Corrigan, Don Lester and Joe O'Shields
We will explore the cost of discipleship and what Jesus says about it in the Sermon on the Mount. We will discuss how Discipleship Groups affirm that cost and hold each other accountable in their weekly meetings.
Please join us as part of your Lenten discipline to read, mark and inwardly digest the various ways Jesus tells us we are blessed in the Sermon on the Mount and then ways to affirm those blessings weekly as part of your spiritual discipline.
We look forward to counting our blessings together and living into our discipleship. As Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “Discipleship is free but not cheap; the cost is nothing less than everything.”
