The Beginning and End of Life – Theology on Tap
February 10 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Detroit Catholic Young Adults
The beginning and end of life come with some of the most contested, controversial and consequential issues in our society. Beyond that, most of us will face times in our lives where we will need to make important decisions for ourselves or our loved ones related to those times. For this Theology on Tap, Dr. Mark Latkovic will unpack the principles we use in Catholic bioethics and how these principles can be used to guide our bioethical decision making, taking a closer look at some of those issues including abortion, in vitro fertilization, euthanasia and more.
Talk begins at 7 PM. Come before for food, drinks and time to meet friends.
