Adult Formation

St. Brendan's periodically offers adult formation opportunities after the 10 am Sunday service and at other times throughout the year (such as special Lenten series). Check out these recordings of some of the speakers we have featured.

AFTER THE CIVIL WAR: 
AMERICA’S FAILURE TO MAKE BLACK LIVES MATTER

Originally presented on August 13-14, 2020 by Michael Waseleski this two part series, “AFTER THE CIVIL WAR; AMERICA’S FAILURE TO MAKE BLACK LIVES MATTER”challenges what we know about slavery and expand our understanding of its legacy in the United States. St. Brendan’s has made a commitment to support the Black Lives Matter movement and to that end we have made this series available at no charge.

This six-week interactive series was facilitated by several Episcopal priests and laypersons who are well versed in the Episcopal way of life, especially the practical aspects of it, during Lent 2018. The series included a little lecture, lots of discussions, some PowerPoint, sharing stories, perhaps a film, a bit of singing, hand-outs, take-a-ways and a whole lot more.

On Sunday, August 12, 2018, St. Brendan's welcomed Wasiullah Mohamed, executive director of the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh, to give Brendan's an overview on Islam and insights into the experience of being a Muslim in modern-day America as well as answer questions. 

"race, Religion, and Reconciliation

This June, in response to the death of George Floyd and many other Black women and men, Saint Brendan’s posted a banner outside our church that stated, “St. Brendan’s Believes Black Lives Matter.” In a series of Zoom webinars, we seek to articulate for our members and for the general public the beliefs of the Episcopal Church on issues such as systemic racism and racial inequity; the beliefs of many members of St. Brendan’s on those same issues and, in addition, the decision we took to display the banner; and the background and goals of the national Black Lives Matter organization.
