Knowing Your Faith:
A Key to Effective Evangelization


In conjunction withLegatus
The Breakers
Palm Beach, Florida
January 14, 2021
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 2021 Legatus Summit East, “Salt and Light.” The seminar is open, free of charge, to all of the conference’s attendees.

“Thomas Aquinas College is lending a helpful hand to the Church to fulfill her mission. There is no doubt that this Christian environment that is nurtured here is the main cause why there have been so many responses to the call of God to the priesthood and to the consecrated life in the female and male students of your College.”
