Letter from Archbishop Hebda to the Faithful of the Archdiocese

What’s New?

Science and Faith – A 6 week series with Professor Philip Rolnick. Join Philip Rolnick, a parishioner and  professor at the University of St. Thomas, as he shows how recent scientific discoveries are not only compatible with faith, but can actually be helpful.   He has written the book Origins: God, Evolution, and the Question of the Cosmos (Baylor University Press, 2015).  This book on science and theology has been nominated for three national awards. The book takes challenges of contemporary science, including evolutionary theory, and turns them to advantages for faith. Sessions will be March 20, 27, April 3, 10, 24, and May 1.  Cost is $15.00. Science & Faith Series Registration Form
