This seminar gives an overview of the origins and theology of Christian worship, with an emphasis on the Eucharistic liturgy. Additionally the reforms of Vatican II will be highlighted, and participants will be asked to reflect on their experience of Christ’s presence in the liturgy. For the fullest course experience, participants should obtain “Models of the Eucharist” by Kevin W. Irwin (ISBN-13: 978-0809143320), available through Amazon and other retail outlets, before the first session.
St. Francis presented by Tim Hetzel
Three Wednesdays – 10/3, 10/10, 10/17
In this three-week study on St. Francis, participants will look at the life of our patron saint in three main aspects: his love for creation, his care of the marginalized, and his fascination with the mysteries of our faith. This seminar will incorporate popular depictions of St. Francis as well as stories from primary texts. No course materials needed.

Adult Formation: Going Deeper
The Gospel of Luke Scripture Study
Luke tells the story of Jesus of Nazareth as a mighty prophet and Savior of the world in fulfillment of Old Testament expectations. Luke also emphasizes Jesus as a person dedicated to prayer. He begins with Jesus’ virginal conception and birth, and follows Jesus through his public ministry to his passion, death, resurrection, and ascension into heaven—all under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Luke, along with Matthew and Mark, is one of the synoptic gospels. It is the primary gospel of year ‘C’ in the Catholic Church’s liturgical cycle. Join us on this exciting journey!
Cost: $20 per person – This includes 12 sessions, a Study Guide by Little Rock Scripture Study Staff and the New Collegeville Bible Commentary, The Gospel According to Luke, by Michael F. Patella (Liturgical Press).
