We will leave early Saturday morning and return Sunday early evening. The cost will be $70 to cover the cost of housing, food, materials, and gas. Scholarships are available upon request.

Over the course of the next year, we’ll seek fresh answers to the most fundamental question: Who is God? Each month, C†YA for Discussion will explore one aspect of God in two different ways: through questions and through art and beauty. On the first Thursday of the month, we’ll meet at a restaurant for a free-flowing discussion over drinks. On the third Thursday, we’ll meet at the Cathedral to discuss how a work of art illuminates the mystery at hand.
Monthly on the first Thursday (next: March 6) – 7 to 8:30 PM – Uptown Tap House – Back Room (3412 Connecticut Avenue NW / Cleveland Park)
The topic for the fourth Questions on Faith will be “Life, Crucified,” so we’ll be tackling questions on Christ’s suffering and death. You don’t need to have attended the earlier discussions to participate. No question is off limits, and all are welcome to challenge, discuss, or just listen. This is a casual discussion, and you’re welcome to order dinner or drinks to enjoy as we talk.
Contact Mike (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions.
Monthly on the third Thursday (next: March 20) – 7 to 8:30 PM – Cathedral North Conference Room
The third Conversations on Beauty will examine the topic of the crucifixion through works of art. No knowledge or experience with art needed! All are invited to attend and discuss or just listen. We will end the evening with a half hour of adoration and prayer in the sanctuary.

Monthly on the third Monday (next: March 17) – 7 to 8:30 PM – Cathedral North Conference Room
