Tuesday, November 13, 2012 - 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Sanctuary, 3rd Floor Old Union

This fall we are launching a new faith formation series called "Newman Nights." Each Tuesday evening gathering we will offer presentations on the breadth and depth of Catholic Theology. Newman Nights are open to the entire community with special break-out sessions for RCIA, Confirmation, permanent community members, and students.

In this session we will engage in an in-depth examination of the themes of the Gospel of Mark, particularly in how Jesus disrupts the cultural and religious norms of first century Palestine in order to bring about the Kingdom of God.
