2020 Series (February/April)


February 2Introduction to the Year of Matthew (The Dean)


At the beginning of December, we start a new liturgical year during which we focus especially on the way that the Gospel of Matthew interprets the meaning of Jesus. After a year of listening closely to Luke's take on Jesus, in the coming year we will be hearing how Matthew understands Jesus. This seminar will help us prepare to spend a year with Matthew as we explore the meaning of Jesus for us today.
