NEW! WEEKLY THEOLOGICAL REFLECTION

We’re starting a “Socratic Circle” at SFDS! Our pastoral staff has been meeting informally to discuss theological works for quite some time as a way to keep ourselves theologically literate and up-to-date. We thought we’d try opening it up to all parishioners interested in adult faith formation. We’ll begin in the New Year with Elizabeth Johnson’s Quest for the Living God: Mapping Frontiers in the Theology of God.

Come prepared to discuss Chapters 9 & 10.
