Science Week in Parishes 2019

Relating Christianity to science is one of the biggest pastoral challenges we face as we seek to encourage the people of God in their faith.

Science Week in Parishes, which grew out of the Science Week at the Cathedral program, is one way of helping Christians to overcome misunderstandings about science and faith. In a very modest way, we hope to equip them for conversations with people who maintain “I believe in science, so I couldn’t be religious.”
