The Fathers of the Church were crucial to the early formation of Christian doctrine, liturgy and organization. Men and women in the first centuries suffered for their faith, evangelized the world around them, debated and defined the early creeds, and laid the groundwork for the Church we live in today.

In the BCYC Immersion Church History program for high school students, we will study the writings of Saint Augustine, Ignatius, Irenaeus, Justin Martyr, Tertullian and others in order to gain a better appreciation for the faith we live and practice today.
