No knowledge of Greek required: just an open mind, an open heart, an open Bible--and a sense of humor. A reception in the undercroft will follow. Please register if you plan to attend by contacting Sub-Dean Manjo Zacharia.

About Christian Formation

What is traditionally called religious education, or even Sunday School, is known as Christian Formation at the cathedral. This is not just some branding effort to be different or unique. Instead, it reflects an approach to how we believe we may best grow as Christians.

Being a Christian is not only an intellectual pursuit, but also -- and deeply - a matter of the heart and spirit. When we open ourselves up to the concept of formation, a formation directed by the hand of God, we move into our true callings as human persons. The act of formation becomes transformation. And in that, we learn what it truly means to be Christian. Our classes reflect this understanding.

The Christian Formation committee is chaired by Susan West.
