Apologetics Series:
The Nature of God

Tuesday, February 23rd // 7 PM
Join us for the third class of our Spring 2021 Apologetics Series on Tuesday at 7 PM in the Catholic Center lobby. We will be discussing the nature of God, fallacies, and the problem of suffering. Masks and social distancing required!

This semester, the Catholic Center will be offering an ongoing lecture and discussion series for Apologetics. This series will give you the tools to provide an explanation and defense for the Catholic faith: starting from the existence of God, all the way to the Traditions of the Church. 

The classes will aim to build off each other, but please feel free to attend whichever you’re interested in!
