Built Upon Rock: Finding Your Footing in a Period of Great Turmoil

Providentially, this year’s tumultuous presidential election coincides with the 25th anniversary of the great papal encyclical, Evangelium Vitae, which contains the Church’s fundamental teachings on the dignity of the human person and our unrelenting obligation to uphold that dignity in all aspects of life and society. Join us for an evening lecture on how these teachings provide us with the grounding we need to keep our footing and navigate confidently through these difficult and turbulent times.
