Hosea

The Prophet Hosea

rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Fr Paul has blessed us to have a study group for those interested in deepening our faith also by this means. All sinners (and saints) welcome – from tentative enquirer to seasoned Orthodox faithful.

“A catechism is a summary or exposition of doctrine and serves as a learning introduction to the Sacraments traditionally used in catechesis, or Christian religious teaching of children and adult converts”. (Wikipedia definition). It aims to provide a solid and sound foundation for growth in faith and holiness within the ancient body of the Holy Church.
