Br. Guy Consolmagno, director of the Vatican Observatory will be giving a talk entitled “Faith, Science, and the Common Good.”

Science is an exploration of the natural world based on logic and reason. And yet logic and reason must always start with assumptions, accepted on faith. Our core beliefs not only determine how we expect the universe to work; they also and just as importantly supply the motivation for the science we do, and determine what counts as “success.” They also affect why we as individuals choose to be scientists. How does our faith affect these choices? This is at the core of how Pope Francis has blended science and faith in his encyclical Laudato Si’.

March 26th at 6:30pm
