Love and Responsibility:Catholic Reflections on Marriage and Family
Join us on Wednesday, October 14th, at 7 PM in our church for this inspiring talk given by George Sim Johnston. During his recent visit to the United States, Pope Francis said, “I cannot hide my concern for the family, which is threatened perhaps as never before … I can only reiterate the importance and, above all, the richness and beauty of family life.” The Catholic Church has a very deep understanding of marriage and family. We shall look at the theology behind marriage and suggest ways of approaching marriage in a secular culture which has come to view it merely as a life-style option. There will also be tips on how to make a marriage and family work better.
Religious Liberty in the United States An Evening with Thomas Renker
Monday Evening, October 19th Increasingly, cultural changes that come into conflict with religious teaching are reflected in statutory, judge-made and administrative law. The transformation of these cultural movements into law affects the rights of religious people and organizations to conduct themselves in conformance with the teachings of their faith. Thomas Renker, General Counsel of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, will offer a perspective on the growing conflict between culture and religious freedom in the United States.
