Newman Lenten Series
Thursdays 7:30pm – 8:30pm in Roetter Hall
February 15 – March 22
Join Fr. Boom Martinez, SJ and the Young Adults and Graduate Students (YAGS) for a Lenten series on the social teachings of the Catholic church.
Sometimes called the Church’s “best kept secret,” Catholic social teaching is based on a set of core principles that address issues designed to help guide us in applying the Good News of the Gospel to the social, economic, and political problems we face in these modern times such as human dignity, the call to participate in family and community life, the promotion of human rights and responsibilities, the Church’s preferential option for the poor and vulnerable, care for God’s creation, and the call to be peacemakers.
After the introductory session on February 15, each succeeding Thursday is designed to be a stand-alone session – so it’s easy to attend some or all of the sessions as your schedule allows.

Lighting The Way To Interfaith Peace
“All of us want peace. Many people build it day by day through small gestures and acts; many of them are suffering, yet patiently persevere in their efforts to be peacemakers” (Regina Coeli)…May we dedicate ourselves prayerfully and actively to banishing violence from our hearts, words and deeds, and to becoming nonviolent people and to building nonviolent communities that care for our common home. [Quoting St. Francis of Assisi,] ‘Nothing is impossible if we turn to God in prayer. Everyone can be an artisan of peace.”
