St. John Paul II Lecture Series presents: Ross Douthat

7:00 PM

The Saint John Paul II Lecture Series is a quarterly event which features intellectually stimulating talks free of charge.

The St. John Paul II Lecture Series presents: Ross Douthat. Ross Douthat is an op-ed columnist for the New York Times.  He is the author of four books, most recently To Change the Church; Pope Francis and the Future of Catholicism.  He lives in New Haven, Connecticut with his wife and three children.

He will speak on the topic “Secularism is Weak: Catholicism’s Crisis, Catholicism’s Opportunity.” It will be a discussion of how the church’s present struggles coexist with strong evidence of the thinness of secular liberalism and the clear resilience of religious interest and experience.

105th Annual Migrants and Refugees Mass

3:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Join Bishop Jorge Rodriguez for a special Mass celebrating World Day of Migrants and Refugees at Queen of Vietnamese Martyrs Catholic Parish. The Mass will “travel the globe” and incorporate elements from various Catholic cultures around the world. A festival immediately follows Mass with cultural dances, music and food.

World Day of Migrants and Refugees has been celebrated by the Catholic Church since 1914; the first being held shortly before the outbreak of World War I. It’s an occasion for Catholics to express concern for people on the move, and to pray for the challenges they face and increase awareness about the opportunities that migration offers.

For 2019, Pope Francis has chosen the theme “It is not just about migrants”, encouraging those already established in a society to be welcoming of those who are newly arrived.

Date: Sunday, September 29, 2019
Time: Mass begins at 3 p.m.
Location: Queen of Vietnamese Martyrs
(4655 N. Harlan St., Wheat Ridge, CO, 80033)
