The program “Christians in a Hostile World: Morality of Contemporary Issues” will focus on an aspect of our contemporary culture that poses a moral challenge to Catholics.  She will provide an understanding of Church teaching on certain topics, as well as the tools needed to defend that teaching in a clear and charitable way to those who may disagree or misunderstand.

Some of the topics that she will discuss are:

  • The Elderly: Respecting the Dignity of the Aged
  • The Elderly and Incapacitated: End of Life and Care Issues
  • Religious Liberty and Conscience Rights
  • The Same Sex Marriage Threat to Religious Liberty and Private Enterprise

 …and so much more.
