Faith formation by parishioners, for parishioners

Within our parish community are many people who have talents and areas of expertise which can be of benefit to others.  So it is a real blessing when they offer to share these with fellow parishioners.  Long-time parishioner Dr. Al Gregory has offered to speak about the complex moral issues relating to the beginning of life, drawing on his personal research on the teachings of the Church, and on his experience as both a scientist and a medical practitioner.  We hope you will join us for his presentation.

Beginning of Life Moral Issues, Thursday February 16 at 7:00

There are a number of complicated moral issues around the beginning and end of life.  The Church teaches that human life must be respected because it is sacred.

The presentation will be followed by a short period of questions from participants.
