Revised program: “Augustine’s Confessions

In light of the Coronavirus pandemic and the various lockdown measures in place, we have decided to postpone our regularly scheduled summer seminar for the summer of 2021. The “City of God, City of Man” program will still take place — with the benefit of extra planning! — next summer.

But we are not simply canceling! We know that almost all of your summer plans have been canceled or interrupted and, with or without a pandemic, the desire to delve into the riches of the Catholic tradition remains strong. While PCSP depends upon living at the seminary — the rhythm of study and prayer, daily Mass, the beautiful environment, and the camraderie of friends — we are still able to achieve a faint imitation of this opportunity by gathering virtually to study together Augustine’s Confessions.

The Confessions opens with the famous line “Great are you, O God, and greatly to be praised.” Augustine is speaking, in other words to God: this book is an extended prayer as much as anything else, offering readers a glimpse into Augustine’s prayer life. This will be our sole text for our week-long virtual reading group.

Join us 3:00 - 5:00 PM, July 13—17 from the comfort of your own home for our “virtual reading group.” The program will be led by PCSP’s teachers, as well as a special visit from Archbishop Perez! Each day, participants will end their time together with Evening Prayer.
