Free Course: "The Meaning of Conscience in a Multi-(and No-)Faith World" with Dr. Matthew Petrusek

Wednesday, July 19 at 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Aquinas High School 2772 Sterling Ave, San Bernardino, CA 92404

What does it mean to act according to one’s conscience, especially in relation to recognizing the moral authority of Church teachings? This class will explore the meaning of conscience and identify ways in which the faithful, according to the Church, can—and cannot—disagree on moral matters. As part of the discussion, we’ll look at how individual conscience functions in a morally pluralistic and multi-faith world.
