June 2, 2017 ▪ 11:30 -1:00pm
Come join us for a presentation on
The Everlasting Covenant Between Faith and Science
Fr. Christopher Zerucha
Parochial Vicar St. Mary (Painesville)
The division between faith and science has been greatly exaggerated. Consider Father Gregor Mendel, the Augustinian friar who founded the modern science of genetics, or the Belgian priest, Father Georges Lemaître, who first proposed the theory of an expanding universe and the Big Bang theory, known for their dedication to both faith and science. Jesuit Brother Guy Consolmagno, director of the Vatican Observatory, said that he finds the younger crop of scientists to be more accepting of all kinds of religious traditions than they were 30 and 40 years ago.
Father Chris Zerucha is a priest of Cleveland ordained in 2011. In addition to Bilingual Parish Ministry at St. Mary, Painesville, and Jail and Veterans’ ministry, he enjoys distance running, playing percussion, being with family and friends, and learning about scientific discovery. In 2016, he went to the national Faith and Astronomy Workshop hosted by the Vatican Observatory Foundation. It well-explicated the covenant between Faith and Science.
