April 2, 3, 4
The Challenge of Culture, the fourth installment in the Disciple Series presented by the Office of Evangelization. As Catholic Christians, we find ourselves caught between the rich teachings of our faith, and the pervading views of contemporary culture. The promise of happiness through material gain, independent thought, power and free choice is continually enticing us… but do these truly satisfy the longings of our hearts? How can we meet people where they are, and present timeless Truth in a way that can be heard and accepted, especially by those who are far from Christ? How do we read the signs of the times in light of the Gospel?
April 2 at Divine Mercy, Central Square, 1-3 p.m. or 6-8 p.m.; April 3 at Our Lady of Lourdes, Utica, 1-3 p.m. or 6-8 p.m.; April 4 at Our Lady of Sorrows, Vestal, 1-3 p.m. or 6-8 p.m. No cost to attend.
