The next Ave Explores series will focus on the connection between faith and science. It will begin April 21, 2021.
Ave Explores is a free educational series created to help Catholics consider aspects of our faith from a variety of angles, allowing us to look at topics that are relevant to our daily spiritual lives in fresh, engaging, and practical ways. It’s everyday faith for everyday Catholics. The series is also perfect for seekers and those who want to learn more about the Catholic faith.
The Church has always been a strong advocate for science. Ave Explores: Faith and Science will consider the relationship between belief in God and trust in scientific principles and study by examining how science and the faith work together to reveal truth. Through this four-week, multimedia series, you will learn from experts in the fields of bioethics, astronomy, aerospace, climate science, ecology, theology, and apologetics. You will also meet a new saint-scientist each week through art and the written word.
