Pagan Shadows on the Church Calendar: How Christianity Co-opted Pagan Celebrations
Is December 25 really the date of Jesus’ birth? What are the connections between All Saints Day and Celtic festivals? Learn the answers to these questions as we explore how early Christianity adopted pagan holidays and rituals as it spread out of the Holy Land. Wednesday, May 27, at 7:30 p.m.

People Not of the Book:
Non-Abrahamic Religions of the Mideast

As today’s headlines cruelly demonstrate, Jews, Christians, and Muslims are not the only faith traditions in the Mideast. We will explore the history, beliefs, and current status. Sunday, May 31 at 9:00 a.m.

Parish Retreat

Plan to spend a few days in the fresh mountain air, relaxing with friends and renewing your spirit at Shrine Mont on the weekend of June 5-7. All meals are prepared for us; there’s plenty to do and plenty of time to not do anything.

Shrine Mont is a great place for everyone to unplug and enjoy the simple pleasures of creeks, naps, and getting tired playing outside.

The registration deadline in Tuesday, May 26, so download a registration form or contact Sonya Marsden now if you have questions.
