Ten Reasons I Love Being An Episcopalian

This six week course is for you if you:
1. Are Roman Catholic, Baptist, Presbyterian or any other kind of Christian.
2. Are new to the Episcopal Church and wonder what you’ve gotten yourself into.
3. Would like to learn why we do what we do as we do it.

Fr. Mulder will be leading these sessions, but there will also be lots of discussion. So bring your cup of coffee and join us. You’ll be glad if you do.

PS – Even if you can’t get to all of the sessions, come when you can.
