  3. The Center for Virtue and Learning hosted its first Russian Christmas Dinner on January 6, the feast of Epiphany in the west; also traditionally celebrated as Christmas Day in Russia.

Second is Canticle of St. Nicholas from the album We Are Guarded by the Cross by The St. Elijah Children's Choir.

The Center for Virtue and Learning is a Catholic teaching apostolate dedicated to answering Pope Benedict XVI’s call to integrate faith, reason, and culture in order to combat the forces of Relativism and bring the light of the Gospel to the modern world.

About the Instructor:

Brandon Barker was born and raised in Greenville, TX. The eldest of three kids, Brandon grew up in a devout Baptist household. He had a Prodigal Son-like experience throughout his early twenties before his profound conversion and reunion with his heavenly Father at age 26. Planning on becoming a Protestant pastor or seminary professor, he began an intensive study of the Bible and was sent by his church to Dallas Theological Seminary. The more he immersed himself in Scripture and Church History the more he found it to support the Catholic faith. Eventually, he was compelled in conscience to enter the Catholic Church, which he did in 2009. Brandon is currently pursuing a Master’s in Theology through the University of Dallas and Franciscan University at Steubenville. He currently lives in Greenville, TX with his wife, Ericha and daughter, Eve.
