The Human Person: Clarity and Charity (On Same-Sex Attraction)

  • St. Charles Catholic Church 3304 Washington Boulevard Arlington, VA, 22201 United States (map)

Session 6: Clarity and Charity
Speaker: Fr. Paul Scalia

Fr. Paul Scalia will present on the Church's teaching on same-sex attraction and how we can respond with "Clarity and Charity" in the midst of shifting cultural norms. Fr. Scalia previously served as Coordinator of the Courage for the Catholic Diocese of Arlington. Courage is an apostolate of the Roman Catholic Church to assist those with same-sex attractions. Endorsed by the Pontifical Council for the Family, Courage seeks to help persons with same-sex attractions develop an interior life of chastity and move beyond the confines of the homosexual identity to a more complete identity in Christ.

8:00-9:00pm in Benedict Hall

Series: The Human Person

The winter season of Adult Faith Formation courses will focus on the theme of The Human Person. The question of what it means to be human is one that societies have wrestled with throughout the ages, yet the times we live in are presenting challenges to our assumptions about humanity in unprecedented ways. This series of talks will draw from the deep roots of Catholic theology, philosophy, and spirituality to propose a conception of The Human Person grounded in the God of Creation and the Revelation of Jesus.
