The Veneration of the Saints:

Origins & History, Spirituality, Prayer & Meaning


Perpetua & Felicitas


In this three-part series, we will discuss the distinctively Christian aspects of the veneration of the saints. We will discuss the origins and history of the veneration. We will also discuss some of the "nuts and bolts" of the veneration: relics, feast days, calendars, shrines, liturgies, canonization, universal vs. local saints, among other issues. We will also discuss the meaning of the veneration of the saints for Episcopalians, and, specifically, for the people of Saint Mary's. We will also ask the question: "Who are the saints for me, in my life, today?"

The class is led by Father Jay Smith on October 12 and October 26.

The class on October 19 is led by Ms. Grace Bruni.
