CHRISTIAN EDUCATION for ADULTS

This fall we are launching Collegium Magdalenae, a weekly study group offering a place to learn, explore, and ask questions about living a Christian life. Our first course offering in Collegium is: “Lord, Teach us to Pray” – Tuesday evenings, beginning 16 September, 7.00 pm–8.30 pm, this 6-week course provides an opportunity to engage with various forms of prayer in the Christian tradition, and to answer the question, “How do I pray contemplatively?”  For more information, check out the Christian Education page on this website, or contact us (below).
