2017 Annual Diocesan Conference:
Faith, Science, and the Wonders of Creation
The 2017 Annual Diocesan Conference will be held on Saturday, November 25, 2017, at St. Edward's Parish in Duncan, BC.
The day will begin with Mass at 8:45a.m. celebrated by Bishop Gary Gordon. The rest of the day will feature Br. Guy J. Consolmagno SJ, Ph.D., who is the President of the Vatican Observatory Foundation. Br. Consolmagno will explore the relationship between faith and science and share his amazing work as the Pope’s Astronomer. This promises to be an 'out of this world' experience!
In a desire to share this day with a larger audience, we are inviting the general public to the whole day. Invite your friends even if it’s just for the afternoon sessions. As a world-class astronomer Bro. Guy will reveal, through words and pictures, marvels that will inspire all!
