Join us for an 8 week Adult Faith Formation study program featuring renown theologian, author, and national speaker, Dr. Edward Sri. We'll explore the classical view of morality and find that it's not merely a set of guiding principles for theoretical situations—it is an entire way of life.

At each gathering we will review a video featuring Dr. Edward Sri and then enter into group discussion and reflection. Further study can be done using the book.

Books can be purchased from the Parish Office for $5 ($14.40 on Amazon).

Participant study guides will be provided at all sessions. Donations to cover the cost of materials is greatly appreciated.

For more information contact Bridgette Cosentino at bcosentino@holycrossmesa.org or 480-981-2021 Ext. 206.

Session 1 on Jan 17: Don't Impose Your Morality on Me!

What is "right" and "wrong?" Is what’s right for you right for me? Is there a right and wrong for everyone, all the time?These are difficult questions to discuss in our culture. We live in a society that supports the opinion that each person should make up his or her own morality—that there is no moral truth that applies to everyone.

Many of us have been affected by the relativistic outlook that pervades the modern world. Maybe some of us wonder whether there really is an absolute right and wrong for everyone. Or maybe we accept that there is a moral standard for all, but we don’t know how to explain our moral convictions in a convincing way. Maybe some of us are afraid of saying something is immoral because we’re afraid of offending others or of being labeled intolerant. How do we talk about morality in a relativistic world? That’s what we begin to explore in the opening session of this study.
