Event description

Description

Many Christians have found it hard to reconcile modern science with their faith, particularly when it comes to evolution. Although they may not realize it, Catholics have a wealth of philosophical, theological, and scriptural tradition to draw on to help address difficulties raised by the developments of modern science. This lecture will lay out some of the fundamental principles that help Catholics understand the harmony between faith and science, and evolution in particular.

Speaker biography: Fr. Thomas Davenport was born in Mt. Clemens, MI, the son of an Army officer, and moved a number of times with his parents and older brother while growing up. Eventually he graduated from high school in northern Virginia, where his parents still live and attend Our Lady of Good Counsel Church. He studied physics at the California Institute of Technology and went on to earn a PhD in physics from Stanford University. “I have always been inspired by the wonder of God’s creation, even down to its smallest parts, but as a Dominican I have begun to see more clearly the place of that creation in His providential order and hope to share the beauty of His loving plan, even down to the smallest individual.

Doors open at 6:30 pm, reception follows lecture. All are welcome.
