Previous Events


June 2022

Description: What does the Bible say about Homosexuality? Probably not what you think!  Through the use of history, narrative, theology, and modern biblical scholarship, Russ Tripi will teach us how to deconstruct/respond to the biblical passages that have often been used to combat gay and lesbian people. A special LGBTQ+ Pride-Month workshop!

Mass Confusion

May 2022

Description: “Mass Confusion” – an immersive behind-the-scenes look at the liturgy. Ever wonder why we do what we do?  Accompany religious studies educator Russ Tripi as he guides his audience into the sanctuary of the church to deconstruct the liturgical rituals, symbols, vessels, linens, and even the architecture, to uncover the hidden meaning of what each says about tradition and theology.


If you have a topic that you think would be a great addition to Saturday Sessions, we would love to hear from you. Please contact our Director of Religious Education, Russ Tripi.
