Celebration of Sacred Scripture
The Biblical Roots of the Apostle’s Creed
All are Welcome! Free of Charge!
Saturday, March 6, 2021, 12:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. with a break from 2:15 p.m. - 2:45 p.m.
Dr. Brian Schmisek, St. Mary’s University of Minnesota
The Apostles' Creed is the most ancient statement of the Christian faith still in regular use in the church today. Children are taught to memorize it, anyone who prays the rosary says it at the beginning of each set of mysteries, and it remains one of the basic prayers in the Catholic canon. Yet where did it come from, what does it actually mean, and why are we called to believe it? Dr. Brian Schmisek will engage what the church calls the twelve "articles" of the Apostles' Creed and explore their meaning for a twenty-first century faith. We'll examine the scriptural roots of each article and punctuate the presentation with questions designed to elicit and share faith. Our time together will connect Scripture and the Creed to lived faith today.
