Symbolon is back on Wednesday nights!


Please join us for SYMBOLON in the Parish Center (OLBS Church basement) Wednesday evenings at 7PM from April 26th thru May 24th. Fr. Mark Matthias will be our moderator for this very informative series on the Catholic Faith.

SYMBOLON opens up the “big picture” of the Catholic Faith in a way that helps us to know it, live it and talk about it with others. Each session includes a DVD presentation and time for discussion. All are welcome!

The upcoming Symbolon sessions will cover the following topics:
4/26:  Catholic Moral Vision: The Virtue, Grace & the Path to Happiness
5/3:  A Love That Lasts: Discovering Authentic Love
5/10:  A Love that Lasts: God’s Plan for Sexuality
5/17:  Catholic Social Teaching: Building a Civilization of Love
5/24:  Catholic Social Teaching: Protecting the Dignity of the Human Person
