Sister Cathy Nerney, Ph.D., theologian and director of IFR will present “There is No Them, There is Only Us,” the fourth in the series. This session is designed to explore some of life’s big questions: Who are we? Who is God? Why the Church? How are these questions related to each other and to our world’s needs and hopes? Sister Cathy will lead the discussion around how compassion holds the key to these questions.
