"Treasures of our Faith" Seminar Series

Offered by the Benedict XVI Institute for New Evangelization, the “Treasures of the Faith” Seminar series is designed to explore the treasures of the Catholic faith that hav

e shaped Catholic Tradition. Each individual series lasts a semester and focuses either on a particular period of Church history, a particular theological theme, or a particular Church Father, Doctor of the Church, or Catholic Mystic. Texts will be selected from Sacred Scriptures, the writings of the Church Fathers, and Doctors of th

e Church, as well as from the contributions of the Church’s Magisterium. We are always introducing new and interesting subjects to the series. We are also introducing seminars in the evenings at various parishes in Edmonton and St. Albert. If you are interested in hosting a seminar in your parish please contact Dr Stéphane Saulnier at NTC.

These seminars are not for credit and are open to all.

No homework! No prior knowledge necessary! Attendance is free!
