Saints – Those Recognized & Those Unknown
October 14 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
$15 donation suggested (lunch provided)
In-Person (limited space) and online (Zoom) event
Questions abound about “the holy ones”– those who came before us and those who live among us now. Questions such as: What is holiness and what role do saints play in Christian Faith and discipleship today? How is it that a person can be seen by members of the Church as dangerous to the faith and yet later be declared a saint of the Church? Culturally, we might be asking, is the age of saints over, or is it growing in ways we don’t recognize? This presentation and conversation will consider both recognized and unrecognized “saints” and the Second Vatican Council’s “universal call to holiness.”
