Sacred Heart St. Francis de Sales Parish in Bennington and St. John the Baptist Parish in North Bennington will present a program to celebrate the faith of early Christians through their catacomb art with visuals, short videos, music, early Church writings and prayer.

Sacramental images related to baptism and Eucharist will be covered.

Emphasis also will be placed on the assimilation and transformation of pagan motifs, the first images of Mary and the Old and New Testament narratives that dealt with persecution, eschatology and salvation history.

Three sessions will be offered on the following dates:

Monday, Sept. 17; Monday, Sept. 24; and Monday, Oct. 1.

Morning sessions will be at St. John the Baptist from 9:45 to 11 a.m.

Participants are encouraged to attend all three sessions. Refreshments will be served.
