Married Couple Monthly Date Night at St. Rose – Drinks, Dessert and Discussion – begins July 15, 2017

These are difficult questions to discuss in our culture. We live in a society that supports the opinion that each person should make up his or her own morality—that there is no moral truth that applies to everyone. Many of us have been affected by the relativistic outlook that pervades the modern world. Maybe some of us wonder whether there really is an absolute right and wrong for everyone. Or maybe we accept that there is a moral standard for all, but we don’t know how to explain our moral convictions in a convincing way. Maybe some of us are afraid of saying something is immoral because we’re afraid of offending others or of being labeled intolerant. How do we talk about morality in a relativistic world? In this small group study program featuring Edward Sri, we’ll explore the classical Catholic view of morality and find that it’s not merely a set of guiding principles for theoretical situations—it is an entire way of life.

FORMAT: FORMED™ Video Presentation of “Whom Am I to Judge?” by Dr. Edward Sri, followed by Group Discussion with Wine & Desserts
