Defending Theism Study – Arguments for the Existence of God that You Can Memorize (*Updated Schedule)

Fr. Van Lieshout will teach a Four-Week Study on some basic arguments that can be effective in defending basic belief in God’s existence. St. Peter says: “Always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you” (1 Peter 3:15).

Sessions will be held Sunday evenings from 6:30 to 7:45pm in the Cathedral hall.

***Please note!: Due to Bishop Clark’s Funeral Services, the sessions will be pushed back one week. The new dates are:

February 5th, February 12th, February 19th, and February 26th
