Living a Christian Life in an Increasingly Secular World

Monday, February 20 at 6:30 p.m. 

Holy Spirit Catholic Church, Atlanta

As Christians, we are blessed with a faith founded on the words, works and life of Jesus Christ and made whole through the teachings of His Church. Sharing and teaching our faith is a challenge in today’s increasingly secular and complex society, particularly when it comes to . . .

  • Educating children (and adults) on the joy of being a faithful Christian
  • Sharing the goodness, truth and beauty of Church teaching
  • Living as a disciple in today’s workplaces
  • Engaging in civic discourse around important issues in our communities

Please join us for a conversation on these topics with Mark Bauerlein, the Senior Editor at First Things magazine, a monthly publication focusing on intellectual discussions that “advance a religiously informed public philosophy for the ordering of society.” Mark is a well-known writer and thinker in the Catholic intellectual and education movement and was recently named to the board of New College in Florida. His most recent book, The Dumbest Generation Grows Up (2022), discusses many of the challenges we face.
This event is open to all so please share with likeminded friends. There is a $20 ticket charge to cover food and event expenses.
