2019 - 2020 Seminary Lecture Series


What's coming up next . . .

The Department of Philosophy will host the next campus lecture.  Please join us for a very special evening.  

"Medical-Moral Concerns at End-of-Life"  

Abstract:  Preparing for the moment of death frequently involves many moral and medical decisions. Philosophically, it is important to remain humble in the face of the mystery of the human person and the moment of death. The Church, in Her wisdom, provides guidance and excludes euthanasia or suicide as valid choices but also respects the liberty of the faithful in their decision making at the end of their lives.
