Defending the Faith Conference: Franciscan University, Steubenville (July 30 - August 1, 2010)

This summer I am honored to be a speaker at Franciscan University's annual "Defending the Faith" conference, which will be held on July 30 through August 1, 2010. This year's theme is "Be Transformed by the Renewal of Your Mind." I will be giving two talks:

“Can We Be Good Without God? Why Moral Law Requires a Lawgiver" and
"Making the Case for Unborn Life in the Public Square”

Hosted by Franciscan University professors Allan Schreck and Scott Hahn, this should prove to be a terrific conference. In addition to Schreck, Hahn, and yours truly, other speakers include Patrick Lee, Patrick Madrid, Marcus Grodi, Regis Martin, Fr. Benedict Groeschel, CFR, and Justin Francis Cardinal Rigali. You can register online here.

just went there in March for their conference on medical ethics and end of life care and it was top notch!
Wonderful accomodations, meals lectures and fellowship. Make sure you get some time in the recreation chapel of the portiuncula of St Francis of Asissi.
The bookstore is awesome!
it is very neat to be in such a Catholic environment. I was saddened though when I realized what my life would have been like had I stayed in the Church and went to a univerrsity like this. but alas, God knows.
take care and God bless your time at the conference

This is an excellent university and these conferences are fantastic. One of the things I miss most about living in Virginia as opposed to western Pa is access to Franciscan University. It was a great place to go and meditate, pray, and go to Mass. Anyone who goes there hasto see the eternal flame honoring the lost children to abortion as well as the replica of the little church St. Francis experienced his encounter with Christ. Beautiful place!
