THE WEDNESDAY EVENING EXPERIENCE
The purpose of the Academy on Wednesday evenings is to provide a Christian education in a parish setting that will equip adults to function successfully in their ministries.
Students wanting to receive a Parish Academy Graduation Certificate complete all the courses listed under "Courses for Graduation Certificate". Old and New Testament have to be completed first to take the other courses in the graduation track.
Students are often asked to purchase a book(s), workbook, or both for the classes and some classes require a final paper or practical exercise.
