The Mother Boniface Spirituality Center invites people to take time this Lent to refresh their faith during four Thursdays, from 7 to 9 p.m., on Feb. 26 and March 5, 12 and 19. Participants will ponder the mysteries of the Trinity, the incarnation and the redemption – along with the “mysteries” of Jesus’ earthly life that are recounted in the Gospels.
This short course is based on the first part of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Its biblically based doctrine incorporates the insights of contemporary scholarship, the witness of the saints and the treasures of the Catholic tradition in a new synthesis that will appeal to the hearts and minds of all who love the Lord. Participants will be encouraged to follow the course by reading sections of the catechism.
The course satisfies the core requirements for the “Person of Jesus” course for catechetical certification of religious education teachers and catechists in the Philadelphia Archdiocese. One core credit will be earned by attendance and participation in all sessions.
Sister Sara Butler, M.S.B.T., will be the presenter for the workshop sessions. She has taught graduate courses in Christology for 25 years and has just recently completed two terms on the International Theological Commission. She is a consultant to the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization.
The fee is $15 per session or $50 for the series. Registration is due 10 days prior to the program.

Mother Boniface Spirituality Center is a ministry of the Trinitarian sisters and located at 3501 Solly Avenue n Northeast Philadelphia.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
