2020 Crossroads Symposium Faith and Politics: How Does Catholic Social Teaching Address the Issues of Today? / October 21, 2020
From Liza Sanchez on November 10th, 2020
The symposium focused on faith and politics through the lens of Catholic Social Teaching. Our panelists will help us navigate through the issues of the times – voting, social injustice, structural racism, of course, the impact of COIVD-19 on all of our lives.
Panelists: Shirley Gonzales, Council Woman, San Antonio District 5; Elizabeth Lutz, Executive Director, The Health Collaborative; Brother Steve O’Neil, S.M., Marianist NGO representative at the United Nations and Marianist representative with the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility and former faculty member, St. Mary’s University; Rev. Donald A. Page, Pastor, Faith Community Baptist Church, San Antonio; and Vincent D. Rougeau, Dean, Boston College Law School.
Moderated by Thomas M. Mengler, J.D., President, St. Mary’s University.
The Crossroads Symposium is one of the cornerstones of the Center for Catholic Studies. Each symposium focuses on the impact of faith on everyday life, witnessed by those who through their own critical reflection in scholarly discourse bring diverse perspective to pressing issues of the day, particularly those concerning faith and culture, social justice and injustice, issues that particularly concern the local Church and the greater southwest Texas.
