After Jesus ascended, he left us in the hands of the apostles, who were eventually succeeded by churchman, known as the “Fathers of the Church.” Who were these extraordinary holy men? How did their ideas, spiritual writings, and assemblies at early Ecumenical councils shape and form the Catholic faith we practice today? Join us as we gather over three sessions to learn about the ancient and rich history of the early Church and of giants like John Chrysostom, Jerome, and Augustine.
