I am very excited to announce that we are bringing Bishop Robert Barron and 6 of his friends to the Newman Center for our summer faith enrichment series! The Bishop has personally picked 6 of the most influential Catholics from the last 2000 years and put them together in a series called “Catholicism – the Pivotal Players.” This engaging and thought provoking series covers 6 important figures in the history of Our Catholic Church: St. Francis of Assisi, St. Thomas Aquinas, G.K. Chesterton, Michelangelo, St. Catherine of Sienna, and Bl. Cardinal John Henry Newman. Come and find out why these figures had such an impact in their day and age, and why they are still relevant today.
