Fr. 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.
