While it may sometimes appear that Catholics lack biblical literacy, especially when compared to other Christian denominations, the truth is that the Catholic Tradition of history, art, and culture have informed both Catholics and non-Catholics alike about the Bible in very exciting ways. Using The Saint John’s Bible as a model, Fr. Michael Patella, OSB, will show how the Catholic Tradition is well-poised for the new evangelization for this century and beyond. 

This lecture is open to the wider Dallas community; All are welcome.
