Many parishioners would love the chance to learn more about the Catholic faith, but their schedules do not allow them to participate in our weekly Adult Education classes. There are others who question the authenticity and intellectual integrity of the programs that are offered on television, because they can never be sure if these represent solid Catholic teaching. In answer to this desire and need for good Catholic programming, we are pleased to present SYMBOLON.
The SYMBOLON program is web based, so there are no DVD’s to buy or borrow. The parish pays an annual subscription fee, and the members of St. Edward parish can go to the website, create their own logins, and then have access to the excellent video resources that are available. You get to watch on your schedule and in the comfort of your own home. Here are the first ten topics that are offered.
