    Coming Soon

    February 22 and 24: The first-year students last semester had a discussion about how their faith and study of theology academically have influenced one another and from the feed back we received these discussions went well.  We will be holding two similar discussion on the 22 and 24 of February from 6-8 pm.  These times overlap both evening classes each night so that whether you have the early class or the late class you will be able to attend an hour of the discussion, so in effect it will actually be four one hour long discussions.
