Knowing Your Faith:
A Key to Effective Evangelization


In conjunction withLegatus
The Broadmoor
Colorado Springs
September 17, 2020
Seminar: 1:30 – 3:00 p.m.

St. Peter tells us: “Always be prepared to make a defense to anyone who calls you to account for the hope that is in you.” Effective evangelization requires us to be prepared. One way to prepare oneself to be effective in evangelization is to understand the Church’s teaching on the relationship between faith and reason. To that end, it is worth reflecting on St. Thomas Aquinas’ discussion of these matters in the Summa Contra Gentiles.

In this short, accessible passage, St. Thomas shows that there is no opposition between faith and reason. Indeed, he argues that “to give assent to the truths of faith is not foolishness even though they are above reason” (emphasis added).  

Please join members of the faculty of Thomas Aquinas College for a deeper look at these important and timely passages at the 2020 Legatus Summit West, “Faith Moves Mountains.” The seminar is open, free of charge, to all of the conference’s attendees.

“I am deeply touched by the quality of the intellectual and spiritual formation that you offer. The study of philosophy should lead to a conviction that truth can be known, articulated, and defended. Your college shows that this is possible, and on a high level!”
