Adult Formation - Ep-201
Episcopal-201 seeks to meet a variety of spiritual development needs for members of the Trinity Community. There is a story told about three Irish monks who set sail across the Irish Sea in a leather boat without oars or sail. They arrived upon the coast of Wessex where the King asked them why they had come? They replied: 'we longed to go on a journey and we cared not where'.
EP-201 is not a class but a rolling program of adult formation. We are all busy people and so the program allows people to ebb and flow in their attendance. Regular attendance is between 25-30 people. The concept underpinning 201 is that of an umbrella underneath which people with a variety of different needs and at different points on their spiritual path can come together to learn from one another. No previous experience of EP-101 is required. Ep-201 is a place for fellowship and engagement with our own spiritual life as understood within the context of an evolving spiritual journey.
201 meets weekly on a Thursday evening with a break for Christmas, Easter and the summer months of June, July, and August. The evening models the Anglican tradition of spiritual practice worship, study, meditation and common prayer. You can join us for Taize Eucharist with prayers for healing at 5.30pm in the Cathedral Chancel or arrive for the shared meal at 6.15pm in Atwood Hall followed by class concluding with Compline ending at 9pm.
