The rediscovery of the Celtic world has been an extraordinary revelation for many Christians in recent years, an opening up of the depths and riches within our own tradition….” – Esther DeWaal, The Celtic Way of Prayer, p. ix.

This three-session seminar/workshop will introduce the fundamentals of Celtic Christian culture, history, theology, spirituality, and engagement. In three evening Zoom sessions, we will consider the following:

August 19: Celtic spirituality and prayer

August 26: Celtic mission and engagement

The Rev. Canon Mark Scheneman presented this seminar in October 2023 to fellow Associates of the Order of the Holy Cross. Each session includes a slide PowerPoint presentation and will be recorded and distributed to those registered.
