Pilgrim’s Course II

During the five Tuesdays of October, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., we will offer the Pilgrims’ Course II series. The series is open to parishioners who were confirmed or received at Saint Thomas Church since 2015. Topics to be covered include: Eucharistic practices, daily office and daily prayer, church structure and governance, vocation and spiritual practices. We will use the text Walk in Love: Episcopal Beliefs & Practices, by Scott Gunn and Melody Wilson Shoba, which is available for purchase in the bookstore. To sign up for the series, please email Fr. Cheng.

Class Schedule

“The Tudor Prayer Books: 1549, 1552, and 1559.”

On September 29, October 6, and October 13 at 10 a.m., on the fifth floor of the parish house, Fr. Cheng will teach a three-part series on “The Tudor Prayer Books: 1549, 1552, and 1559.” The series will examine the Books of Common Prayer promulgated under Edward VI and Elizabeth I, and, in particular, how these liturgical texts shed light on key theological debates of the English Reformation.

The class on September 29 will focus on the Prayer Book of 1549 and the liturgical contributions of Thomas Cranmer. The class on October 6 will focus on the Prayer Book of 1552 and the incorporation of additional Protestant theological principles into that work.

Weekly Bible Study

At 12:45pm, (almost) every Friday of the year there is a weekly Bible study. Check the calendar to see if the Bible study is meeting on a particular upcoming Friday afternoon.
