Thursday Night Theology
Thursday Night Theology (TNT) is short (6-10 week) sessions for Adult Faith Formation. We cover a variety of topics pertaining to being a Catholic. While the Bible is an important resource for these classes, this is not a traditional bible study. Each class consists of a video followed by group discussion. Sessions are only an hour and a half each Thursday.

Seven Deadly Sins; Seven Lively Virtues: Outline
Based on Dante’s writings, the seven deadly sins correspond to the seven levels of Dante’s Mt. Purgatory. Pride, envy, anger, sloth, gluttony, avarice, and lust are all presented as patterns of dysfunction within us that lead to unhappiness. However, Bishop Barron shows us how to counteract these seven sinful patterns through a conscious process of opposition, which are the “seven lively virtues." The seven lively virtues offer antidotes to each sin and help set us on the right path to healing and happiness.
