HOUSTON — A three-year course offers a unique opportunity to explore, in depth, the history of Christian Mysticism. Structured and taught by leading scholars and practitioners, the “Roots of Christian Mysticism” series focuses on the key figures of the mystical tradition.

The Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston’s Office of Evangelization and Catechesis recognizes the course as being eligible for elective credit toward catechist certification or renewal of certification. Each year class will be held one Saturday a month for nine consecutive months at the Dominican Sisters Meeting Room, 6501 Almeda (at Holcombe). Class will be from 9 a.m. till noon.
