We can hear and learn from the voices of the Early Church even today. Their teachings, their guidance, their insights, and their sacrifice shaped the Catholic Church. They developed our creeds and forms of worship. They defined Christianity's distinctive moral sense. But who were they? What can the Early Church teach us now in the 21st century - about holiness, culture, faith, and the Gospel?
The Church Fathers provide the answers. These brilliant, embattled, and sometimes eccentric men not only defined the biblical canon and gave us our understanding of sacraments and salvation, but they also preserved for us the rich legacy of the early Church; a legacy we would do well to know, respect, and follow.
Our speakers will bring you the exciting stories of the Early Church…..from Ambrose, Augustine, and Basil, to Athanasius, Chrysostom, and Jerome. This dynamic event will inspire and challenge you with the lives and insights of these seminal teachers from when the Church was young, and when the voice of Our Lord still echoed in their ears and burned within their hearts!
