F.A.R. (FAITH AND REASON)
F.A.R. is a speaker series for teens who are searching for a greater depth of knowledge with regard to their faith. Many teenagers have deep questions about the faith that simply cannot be answered in a compelling way by searching the internet or by asking a question at youth group.
EI brings in experts on certain topics and taps into our own staff's knowledge in order to present on timely topics of faith with the application of church teaching and reason.
All of our F.A.R. events will take place at the St. John Paull II Newman Center located on the UNO Campus.
Dates & Topics
There's a lot of noise out in the world today, and it can be very hard - if not, downright CONFUSING - for teenagers to get a grasp on who they are and why they are that way. That's why our F.A.R. topics for this year are based around on the idea of "Finding My Identity."
Does It Matter What I Do with My Body?
