During the season of Lent, the Whittier edition of the University Series offers more than 30 seminars connecting faith with real life in areas such as current events, contemporary moral issues, faith & science, marriage & family, archaeology & scripture, and school parenting.

This program is part of the larger The University Series that is now a non-profit foundation in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, founded in Ventura County by Father Dave Heney in 2002. As the new pastor of St. Bruno, Father Dave, along with Father Steve Nyl, the pastor of St. Mary’s, begin this multi-parish adult education program here in Whittier.

The 2017 season will take place at both St. Bruno and St. Mary of the Assumption Catholic Churches in Whittier from March 2 to April 7, 2017. Sessions always begin at 7:30 pm and end at 9:00 pm. St. Bruno sessions will be held in the Church; St. Mary sessions will be in the parish hall. Tuition is $5/class at the door, and you can bring a guest for free.
