St. Paul's Cathedral provides a variety of adult formation opportunities this fall. Starting September 11th, each Sunday morning from 10:10-11:10am there will be three classes offered led by clergy and laity. Each Wednesday night features Crowded Table, a dinner and discipleship group. Other weekday formation opportunities include the Dean's Book Club, Pub Theology and St. Paul's Choir.

Sunday Formation at 10:10am
Lectionary Bible Study - we will explore the current week's lectionary texts together.
Women in the Bible - Join Jennifer Jones each Sunday at 10:10am for a continuation of the Bible Women class. The class uses the Rev. Lindsay Hardin Freeman’s book Bible Women: All Their Words and Why They Matter to explore women’s voices and stories in our scripture.
Under the Stole: Priestly Perspectives on Life - In this series, St. Paul’s clergy will offer their wisdom and insights from life “Under the Stole.” As clergy we get an up close and personal look at the consequences of our actions on our faith, families, communities and personal well-being

Confirmation Classes - these classes are for folks who are learning about the Episcopal Church for the first time or have an interest in becoming a member. This is a five-week courses starting October 2nd. Contact Mother Sarah to RSVP at [email protected].
Wednesday Night Formation
Crowded Table - Join your friends at St. Paul’s every Wednesday night in Dean Wiley Hall for dinner and roundtable discussion. We will take on hard, brave and awkward topics each month as we learn together in community. We will utilize scripture, modern literature and theology to help us dive deeper into current issues and how we can respond faithfully as Christ followers in the Episcopal Church.
