HOLY, HOLY, HOLY: THE COMMUNION OF SAINTS 086-029-11
Presenter: Diane Zerfas, OP, Spiritual Director, Director of Programs at DCM
Wednesday, Nov. 20, 7:00-9:00 p.m.
We are “surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses” (Hebrews 12:1), the people of God in the Church, and those who have gone before us living lives of virtue and grace. Their witness calls us to be holy too. In this session we will explore the Catholic practice of naming saints (canonization), being named for a saint (feast days) and becoming a saint (Christian living). We will also look at the teachings about heaven, hell, purgatory and limbo (in case you were wondering what the Church teaches now).

THE LITURGICAL YEAR 086-029-12
Presenter: Diane Zerfas, OP, Spiritual Director, Director of Programs at DCM
Wednesday, Dec. 18, 7:00-9:00 p.m.
We know that our lives are more than the number of our years. Each year of life reminds us of where we were, what we were doing and who lived alongside us. Our lives are not linear but spirals of experience. The life of Jesus Christ circles each year with the celebrations of Advent/Christmas, Lent/Easter, and counted Sundays of Ordinary Time. Each cycle invites us into a deeper reality of the mystery of the Incarnation. Exploring the historical development, the living celebrations, the Scripture and images of the Liturgical Year, we will see how Christ’s life intersects with our lives. 
Cost: $15.00. * CFD: Content of Faith
