Adult Formation

Christian formation is a lifelong journey. It is a pursuit that is rooted in the vows of our Baptismal Covenant which encourages us to grow in Christ at every age and in all aspects of our lives.

The Chapel of the Cross offers a robust collection of opportunities to encourage all parishioners in the lifelong process of growing in relationship with God, self, others, and all creation.

The Human Condition with Prof. Stephen Donato starting November 6

We tell our stories and understand God’s story as human beings. “The Human Condition” is a philosophical inquiry into what it means to be fully human. What is the human experience? What is human nature? How do we reconcile a human being’s capacity for great good and for great evil? To explore these questions, we will study leading philosophers, and insight drawn from classic novels, plays, poetry, and film. Classes meet on November  6, 13, 20, December 4, and 11, 7 – 8:30 p.m. Register by emailing Boykin Bell at or Barbara Lankford ( There is no fee. The class is taught by Prof. Stephen Donato (click here for bio).
