Faith & Culture Conversations
Join St. Paul’s parishioners Dr. Christine Luckritz Marquis and Dr. David Coogan as they co-facilitate our monthly Faith and Culture Conversations. We invite speakers who have experience with pressing issues in our community and nation, discussing them through the lenses of faith and culture. We welcome and encourage attendees to participate in these conversations.
This will occur in person with a possible live stream option.
Conversations will last approximately an hour. Light refreshments are available before and after the conversation.
