In partnership with Catholic Youth Ministry, Perth, this course is aimed at young adults and those interested in learning about crucial events in the history of the early Church. Participants will be led through the first 500 years of the Church with a focus on the Jewish roots of Christianity, the creation of the first “house churches” during the centuries of persecution, the works and lives of the fathers of the Church, the Council of Nicaea and the life of Saint Augustine. Over four weeks, the struggles, accomplishments and faith of those who defined Christian identity will be placed under the spotlight. CEWA Ongoing Renewal: this course has been approved for Faith Formation.
