Formation Offering – Church Architecture

Then join me for 4 sessions of “How to Read Churches: A Crash Course in Ecclesiastical Architecture” by Denis R. McNamara. “The book is a primer is for churchgoers interested in decoding the styles and symbols of religious buildings. Every building contains clues embedded in its design that identify not only its architectural style but also who designed it, what kind of congregation it was built for, and why. This practical yet charming handbook is the key to decoding the style, history, evolution, and social significance of religious buildings…There is also a useful introduction to naming each component of a church, from vaults to buttresses and transepts to apses. All entries are illustrated with period engravings and line drawings.” As we read we will explore our own church and see what we discover.

We will meet on Thursday’s at 6:30pm on February 15 and 22; March 1 and 8. The cost of the book is $14.00. A sign-up sheet is in the main hallway. If you have any questions contact Rev. Jimmie Sue.
