Faithful Questions is Tonight – 10/11

One would hope that with a new season I would be able to get ahead of things and make this sort of announcement earlier, but I guess it is just not going to happen.

In any case, tonight’s talk is titled “Does the Church agree with the separation of Church and State?” Here’s a summary:

The concept of the separation of the Church and State is a relatively recent one in the history of the Church and one that in principle comes from the United States constitution, not the Church.  So how has the Church reacted to this revolutionary idea and what does it think of it today?   This talk’s goal will be to show how the Church’s feeling have evolved over the centuries, including both what it has embraced and what it remains wary of.

The talk is at 7 PM and is both in-person in the Morris Hall and live-streamed on YouTube. You can watch it by clicking the graphic below:

See everyone there.

Faithful Questions is tonight!

Back to running *VERY* late!!!!! Faithful Questions is tonight. YIKES! I hope you can all attend. The topic is “When is it moral to fight a war?”

Summary:

With the war in Ukraine, many of us are wonder what the right response is.  Is it moral for the US to intervene directly?  What about indirectly?  In what ways can Ukraine defend themselves and are there limits?  In this talk, Deacon Ken will do his best to share the Church’s long-standing ‘Just War Doctrine’ and how it can help us understand what responses are morally acceptable, particularly in Ukraine.

Like last month, this will be a dual in-person and live-stream event. For those in the Roseville area, you can come in-person and have the level of interaction and comradery that can only be had in person. Plus, we’ll have refreshments! For those who are far away or otherwise can’t make it to St. Clare in Roseville, never-fear, we’re keeping the live-stream to watch either live or after the fact.

So, we’ll see you at 7 PM in the Morris Hall at St. Clare or we’ll see you online… click on the below link to watch the talk:

Yet again I’m running late! Tonight is faithful Questions. The topic is “How do I overcome my habitual sins?”

February Faithful Questions is this week!

Apologies for the late notice (yet again). Faithful Questions is tomorrow (or perhaps today if you don’t see this tonight): Tuesday February 8th. The topic is “What does the Church teach about transgender issues?”

More youth today are coming out as transgender than homosexual as the LGBT lobby has found very effective language to make their case to the youth.  In this talk Deacon Ken will do his best to explain their thinking and how we can respond both with truth and charity.

January Faithful Questions is tonight!

Apologies for the late notice. I just got back from a trip and am rushing to get all the standard FQ setup in time for tonight’s talk. The topic is “How should I react when others sin?”

Christ calls us not only to avoid sin ourselves but to also evangelize the world and to call them away from sin.  But how are we to do that?  In this talk Deacon Ken will do his best to give guidance to how we can be effective voices for truth and righteousness in a world that often appears to be losing its Christian moral compass.

Like last month, this will be a dual in-person and live-stream event. For those in the Roseville area, you can come in-person and have the level of interaction and comradery that can only be had in person. Plus, we’ll have refreshments!

October Faithful Questions is coming up

I’m sure it feels like a quick turn around and indeed it is. The September session was delayed a week, so there’s only 3 weeks between sessions (when it can be as many as 5 on a regular schedule). Thus the October Faithful Questions is almost here! It’s next Tuesday October 12th at 7 PM. The topic is “How is the Church organized?”

This month’s topic is “How is the Church organized?”  Have you ever been confused by the difference between an archbishop and a cardinal?  Or a sister and a nun?  Or a parish and a mission?  Or a convent and a cloister?  In this talk, Deacon Ken will do his best to explain as much of the organizational structure of the Church as he can cover in an hour.

Like last month, this will be a dual in-person and live-stream event. For those in the Roseville area, you can come in-person and have the level of interaction and comradery that can only be had in person.
