The Human Person: The Supernatural Destiny of Man, Part 1

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

Session 9: The Supernatural Destiny of Man, Part 1 - Sanctification
Speaker: Jim Schuster

The human person can only be fully understood in light of his supernatural end - the invitation to share in the very life of God. We'll explore this invitation in two parts: (1) Sanctification - the ways we ourselves are transformed by grace, and (2) Empowered for Impact - that ways we participate in extending the Kingdom of God to the world around us.

8:00-9:00pm in Benedict Hall

Series: The Human Person

The spring 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.
