Welcome to The University Series 2020. I encourage you to take advantage of this adult education in our faith.
Too often religion is blamed for being anti-science, when science is all we need to explain and live our lives. Or religion is blamed for violence that we see daily in news reports, or that we are losing large numbers of our people because religion is no longer relevant. Please come learn the truth – and how to connect our faith to our daily lives. The University Series offers a variety of sessions that help us make better choices, appreciate the Catholic contributions to science, and learn to talk with God.
Pre-register, or simply show up at the door. We welcome everyone. God Bless!
