This Channel will play host to the videos from St. Cyril of Alexandria Catholic Church’s monthly gathering called Theology on the Vine. We welcome anyone who wants to come, of any faith background or none.

These monthly sessions provide an opportunity to gather in a relaxed atmosphere over a glass of wine, participate in a thought-provoking discussion on a different topic each month, and get your theological questions answered.

Rev. Mario Arroyo, pastor of St. Cyril of Alexandria Church, is the host, aided and abetted by various guests. From time-to-time, a Jewish Rabbi and a Baptist minister, Fr. Mario’s co-hosts on the radio show, Show of Faith, drop by. Throughout the year other guests will join us as we dig into each month's topic.
