Sanctity in an Era of Unbelief
Thursday, May 2 | 7:00pm | Christ the King Parish Center
God raises up saints in every era in a manner appropriate to the needs of the time. Today we live in a Western culture characterized by the eclipse of God and a deepening disbelief. Therefore, the saint of today — saints we are all called to be — must be those who can enter into the ethos of unbelief in order to conquer it from within.
Join us as national speaker, writer, and theologian Dr. Larry Chapp presents: Sanctity in an Era of Unbelief.
About the Speaker...

St. John Paul II's the Gospel of Life and the Culture of Death
Thursday, October 26 | 7:00pm | Christ The King Parish Center
What is the future of the pro-life movement in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to reverse Roe v. Wade? Dr. Holloway will address this question by drawing on the thought of Pope St. John Paul II, especially the important encyclical, Evangelium Vitae. What are the culture of life and the culture of death of which the pope writes? What are their origins? What are their implications for the past and future of our civilization? Given the importance of these questions for our present cultural struggles, this is an event you won’t want to miss.
