Christian in the World Lecture Series

Spirituality and theology for the laity. The Christian in the World Lecture Series is an integrated program of study, prayer and discussion for Catholics who want to live their faith more deeply. The program seeks to help participants gain a more profound understanding of the Scriptures and the Church, and to support lay people in exploring how to live their baptismal vocation in everyday life.
