Eastern Vicariate Convivium

“Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth; and God has placed in the human heart a desire to know the truth—in a word, to know Himself—so that, by knowing and loving God, men and women may also come to the fullness of truth about themselves.” —Pope St. John Paul II, Fides et Ratio, Preface
Join the Alcuin Institute for one of our signature Socratic Convivia—our fancy way of saying food, friendship, and good conversation centered around a particular set of primary sources! In keeping with the Diocesan formation theme Revelation: Natural & Divine, we will take a look at various subjects such as the nature of truth, the harmony of faith and reason, the relationship between Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, and the tensions that seem to exist between faith and the findings of modern science. Our hope is that, as we read these texts and engage in discussion, we'll be able to learn more about four central elements of God's revelation to man:
  1. “Quid est Veritas?”—“What is Truth?”
  2. What is the relationship between Faith & Reason?
  3. How do Scripture & Tradition fit together?
  4. How can we reconcile apparent contradictions between Faith & Science?
As always, our conversation will be augmented with an abundance of fine food and drink, so invite a friend and “come, let us reason together!”

West Vicariate (Tulsa) Convivium

Join the Alcuin Institute for one of our signature Alcuin Seminarsour fancy way of saying food, friendship, and good conversation centered around a particular set of primary sources! This event offers the same great formation available in our Tulsa Convivia, but in a condensed format! In keeping with the Diocesan formation theme Revelation: Natural & Divine, we will take a look at various subjects related to God’s revelation of Himself, generally through nature and specially through His Son. Over the course of this 1-day Seminar, we will read select passages from great authors—philosophers, Church Fathers, Saints, and the great Popes of the last century—in the hopes that they will help us answer four important questions: namely, What is Truth?; What is the relationship between Faith and Reason?; How do we reconcile Scripture and Tradition?; How do we deal with the apparent tensions between Faith and Science? As always, our conversation will be augmented with an abundance of fine food and drink, and will include plenty of time for connecting and socializing with your peers. So invite a friend, fellow catechist, or another co-laborer in the Lord's vineyard, and “come, let us reason together!”

In this first gathering, we will take a look at some texts from thinkers such as Aristotle, St. Thomas Aquinas, and St. Augustine to see if we can answer the age-old question “Quid est Veritas?”—“What is Truth?” As always, our conversation will be augmented with an abundance of fine food and drink, so invite a friend and “come, let us reason together!”
