Latin-I Class to be Held at Assumption Grotto Starting January 30th

I mentioned the other day that Deacon Jim Wilder of Assumption Grotto will be teaching an "intense Latin-1 class". The start date for the 7 week class has been changed to Friday, January 30th. It will be held on Fridays from 4:30 until about 6:00 or 6:30, depending on how things are going. This leaves time to get to the 7:00pm Mass for those who want to assist. On Fridays, it is usually in the Extraordinary Form.

The cost of the class is $100 which includes materials. Deacon Jim says he will be working with Wheelock's books.

It might help to know a little about the instructor's background, so I inquired and the Deacon replied...

Taught Latin for twenty-five years, at least. Taught for seven years at Regina High School; at Grosse Pointe South High School for 12 years; taught at least ten years at Assumption Grotto Homeschool; and tutored Latin. Hold a Masters in Latin from Wayne State University and a major in Latin from the once Catholic University of Detroit.

He is tentatively planning on going from Latin-I through Latin-IV over the course of one year
and will start the cycle again. If you don't get in now, it will be at least a one year wait before you can get in.

Sounds good to me. I'm there. Put my name on the list already along with 6 other people who have called.

How do you sign up? Call Jim at 586-776-7774 to register.
