Episcopal 101: What is this Episcopal Church?

images-1Advocate | Episcopal 101 |

Winter and Spring 2016

Are you interested in learning more about the history, theology, liturgy, and structure of the Episcopal Church? If so, join us on Wednesday nights for “Episcopal 101,” a conversation-based introduction to the church.
Each week’s topic will be posted beforehand (see basic plan below). Any and all are welcome to join in any or all sessions.
Note: for these preparing for confirmation or reception in the Episcopal Church at the Bishop’s regional visitation on April 19, participation is expected.
Classes will generally be held at 7 PM at the Advocate, though some parts may be online interactive.
If you are interested in being a part of the conversation, be in touch with Nathan Kirkpatrick (nek@duke.edu) so that we can prepare for your presence.
