Catholic Social Teaching: Versatile Tools
By Rev Fr David Garcia, O.P.
Starts 19 July

What does it mean when the Church says work has dignity? Why is it a problem when managers micromanage their staff? Why do persons with and without intellectual disabilities have equal dignity? What is the problem with both capitalism and communism? What is our duty to the poor and the environment? Why does the Church prefer democracy? What does the Church have to say about world peace?

Jesus challenges us in the gospel to interpret the signs of the times. Come and turn to the Church’s social teachings so we can obtain the tools to think about the social issues of our time!

This new Catholic Social Teaching course will start on 19 July 2022. It will be held weekly on Tuesdays over Zoom live from 8 to 10 pm for five weeks.

My Personal Moral Compass 2022
Module 4
By Rev Fr David Garcia, O.P.

Few issues are as controversial as sexuality today. Many ideas, new and old, compete for our attention in the marketplace of ideas.

Yet, sexuality has always been important for the Church. Why is that? What is its purpose in God’s plan? What are some of the controversial topics? How can we address them?

Let us explore these questions and many more!

Module 4 of the 2022 run of My Personal Moral Compass will start on 7 July 2022. It will be held weekly on Thursdays over Zoom live from 7:30 to 9:30 pm for seven weeks.

Also on audiobook is Nostra Aetate, the ever relevant Vatican II document on our relationship with other religions. Both available on Audible, and wherever great books are heard! Soon also on Spotify and Apple Music.
