Science at St. Charles Seminary

As you may know, James Despres, St. Charles Seminary’s Acting Chair of the Department of Philosophy and Director of the Master of Arts in Philosophical Studies (M.A.P.S.) program, received a $10,000 grant, funded by the John Templeton Foundation, from the Re-Engaging Science in Seminary Formation project at John Carroll University. The grant is supporting Mr. Despres’ development and delivery of a new course, “Cosmos & Creation: Perspectives on Scientific Discoveries and the Intelligibility of Human Experience,” on offer to seminarians this semester at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary.

Now, as part of the same initiative, St. Charles Seminary is pleased to invite the public to a lecture by biologist and theologian Father Nicanor Austriaco, O.P., Associate Professor at Providence College. Father Austriaco’s provocative lecture, “Defending Adam After Darwin: The Origin of Sapiens as a Natural Kind,” will be held at St. Charles on November 13, 2017 at 7pm in the St. John Vianney Auditorium. For more information on Father Austriaco’s lecture, check out our Seminary Lecture Series. Taking up topics at the exciting intersection of science and theology, the lecture is sure to generate broad interest, so please RSVP HERE (or by calling the School of Theological Studies at 610-785-6287) as soon as possible!
