Fr. Richard Sparks

sparksFr. Richard Sparks, C.S.P. will present on:

Neither All Rules, Nor All License: Being Catholic, Christian, and Moral Today

  • Friday, September 17, 2010
  • 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Church
  • Followed by a reception and conversation

Somewhere between the extremes of “obey the law” on the right and “do your own thing” on the left is the trusted and traditional Catholic norm – “follow your conscience.”  So, what is conscience?  How do I know if I’m right?  What if I’m fooling myself?  This promises to be a sound and solid introduction to the Catholic moral tradition on conscience and moral decision-making.  Fr. Sparks is a lively and entertaining speaker.  This presentation is a great way to launch us into the year on "Morality"!  For more information, please download  our flier.
