A Sacramental People

3-week workshop

Based on the Spring 2012 issue of C21 Resources edited by Fr. John Baldovin, S.J., this workshop provides an opportunity to reflect on and discuss a sacramental view of life. The sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Reconciliation, Anointing of the Sick, and Marriage are the focus.  This C21 Resources installment is a companion to previous issues that have addressed Eucharist, Holy Orders, and lay ecclesial ministry. 

NOTE: For a complete overview of Catholic sacramental life, we recommend you also consider eventually enrolling in three other C21 Resources workshops: The Eucharist: At the Heart of Catholic Life, Grace and Commitment: Religious and Ordained, and Grace and Commitment: The Laity.  We also offer a four week course, Sacraments in Catholic Life.

Check the course schedule for future offerings of this course.
