Come join Father Baransky every Thursday beginning March 2 from 11 AM - 1 PM in the Brogan Room where he will discuss Signs of God’s Grace - A Journey through the Sacraments by Reverend Thomas J. Scirghi, S.J., Th.D. The sacraments lie at the heart of the Catholic faith. Now, you can discover them anew in this captivating journey. You will explore the origin of the sacraments through their scriptural roots and their development in the Church’s history. You will also study ritual—how each sacrament is celebrated. The sacraments tell the Christian story of how we come to follow the way of the Lord. Father Thomas Scirghi is Associate Professor of Theology at Fordham University, where he specializes in the theology of sacraments and liturgy, as well as homiletics, the theory and practice of preaching. He earned a Master of Divinity degree from the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley, California; an S.T.L. from the Weston Jesuit School of Theology in Cambridge, Massachusetts; and the Doctor of Theology from Boston University. A member of the New York Province of Jesuits, he has taught at the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley and the Jesuit College of Theology in Melbourne, Australia. In 2013, he was appointed to the Thomas More Chair at Catholic Studies a joint appointment to the University of Western Australia and the University of Notre Dame, Australia.
