The St. Thomas of Canterbury Anglican Use Society of Washington, DC will begin an Inquirer's Class for Anglicans, Episcopalians and all others who may be interested in being received into the Catholic Church through the Ordinariate which will soon be established in the United States.
The Inquirer's Class will will begin on September 17th at St. Anselm’s Abbey in Washington, DC.
There will be four sessions on the following dates:
Saturday, September 17, 2011, 2:30 – 4:30 p.m., followed by Evening Prayer in the Abbey Church;
Saturday, October 15, 2011, 2:30 – 4:30 p.m., followed by Evening Prayer in the Abbey Church;
Saturday, November 12, 2011, 2:30 – 4:30 p.m., followed by Evening Prayer in the Abbey Church;
Saturday, December 10, 2011, 2:30 – 4:30 p.m., followed by Advent Lessons and Carols in the Abbey Church.
All of the Evening Prayer services, and the service of Advent Lessons and Carols, will be followed by coffee hour.
The course will consist of five major sections: Creed, Sacraments, Morals, Prayer and the Anglican Patrimony. Sacraments and Prayer will be covered in one session. Although there will be an overview in each section, most of the time will be spent on those areas that may be of the greatest interest to Anglicans and Episcopalians considering reception into the Catholic Church through the ordinariate.
For example, more time will be spent on the issue of authority in the Church, infallibility, human sexuality, the Precepts of the Catholic Church, and Mary and the Saints in the appropriate sections of the course.
Pre-registration is not required, and all members and non-members of the Society are welcome to attend. Contact James Farr via e-mail (codeblueiii(at)yahoo(dot)com) with any questions you may have.
