Event Description

The Aquinas Institute for Catholic Thought (AICT) will be hosting their second academic lecture of the Fall semester on October 8th at 7:00pm on the University of Colorado, Boulder campus in Eaton Humanities, 1B50. Join Mr. Michael Sean Winters, writer for the National Catholic Reporter, as he offers practical suggestions on how Catholics can involve themselves in America’s political life in light of recent political activity threatening religious freedom.  For more information about this free event, please contact Matt Boettger at Matthew.Boettger@thomascenter.org.

Abstract: In this lecture, Catholic commentator and blogger Michael Sean Winters asks how Catholics - bishops, clergy and laity - can and should involve themselves and their ideas in America's raucous political life. He will focus not only on recent dust-ups like the Obama administration's contraception mandate, but at the deeper trends in American politics that should worry Catholics, as well as some trends within the Church that should worry everyone.
