Adult Christian Formation

 

At St. Aidan’s we explore various topics in our tradition to deepen our spiritual engagement and inspire our action in the world. We do discussion series on particular topics, we host special speakers and workshops, we read books and articles, we watch films, and we eat delicious, home-cooked food along the way!
