This class is for those who desire to grow in faith as a family and build community. We’ll discuss parenting, spirituality, theology, and everything in between with the help of speakers, books, and videos. This is a discussion-based class, and our goal is to learn together as a group. If you feel too old to be a young adult, but are not ready to be called middle-aged, this class may be exactly what you are looking for.

Women’s Sunday School Class

Location: Room 104, Preschool

Facilitators: Pam Phillips, pbphillips@bellsouth.net and Patsy Andrews, pandrews@ewtn.com

The Women’s Sunday School class will continue this winter and spring.  We are an intentional community of learning and prayer, welcoming any and all women of the parish. Collectively we are searching for meaningful ways to be faithful followers of Christ, faithful companions on our journeys and prayerful supporters of one another.   The books or DVD series we choose to study are determined by consensus.  There is no one leader who teaches; we share our reflections with one another and the conversations flow. This group began 2 years ago to fill a need many women had expressed, recalling previous experiences in women’s Sunday Schools at All Saints and the Companions in Christ curriculum we followed from 2002-2010.  We welcome all.  Please come and join us.
