Help My Unbelief: Searching for the Mystery of God in an age of doubt
A dinner conversation for priests, pastoral associates and lay parish leadership.

Fr James Bacik, in conversation with Marcelle Mogg, will discuss today’s struggle to believe in a culture of doubt. The evening is an opportunity to hear and discuss ways of reaching out to the alienated and searching in our parish communities and beyond.

Fr James Bacik is one of North America's finest, most insightful theologians renowned for his remarkable capacity for clear writing and effective teaching. He has a gift for bringing Theology to the masses and is passionate about combining the academic study of theology and the pastoral work he has been doing for many years.

Marcelle Mogg is the Director of Mission at St Vincent’s Public Hospital and is the former editor of Eureka Street magazine.

Venue: Marcellin College 160 Bulleen Road, Bulleen

This is a free event but bookings are essential as places are limited! Contact the AOFE to reserve places for your parish team.

Both look like really interesting sessions, but unfortunately I am not a parish leader and on Monday night I will be teaching my Anima Education course Apocalypse Now (to which you are all welcome if you don't go to hear Fr Bacik).
