EVENTS

The Alcuin Institute serves the Diocese of Tulsa and Eastern Oklahoma in many capacities, most of which aren’t seen by the public. So, we’re pleased to offer you the opportunity to join us for these public events; we hope you will join us as we seek to facilitate a robust Catholic culture in our Diocese!

If you have questions about any of these events, please don't hesitate to contact us!

PUBLIC EVENTS

Tulsa North (Group 2) — Faith & Science

Tuesday, March 22, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Join the Alcuin Institute for one of our signature Convivia—our fancy way of saying food, friendship, and good conversation! In this final discussion of the academic year, we’ll see what some of the great popes of the past century had to say about the harmony between faith and modern science!

Alcuin Short Course Latinitas: Learning Latin Loquaciously

September 9, 6:30 PM - December 9, 8:30 PM

Join the Alcuin Institute as we learn the basics of the Latin language! This weekly short course, offered over the Fall of 2021, will serve as an introduction to Ecclesiastical Latin, taught by none other than Mr. David Dean!

Lecture Series Bishop Konderla: “When Did God Make Time?”

Friday, September 17, 6:00 PM

Join the Alcuin Institute to hear Bishop Konderla give his annual Inaugural Address to teachers! Bishop David Konderla will be speaking on the subject of God and His relationship to time, arguing that “the truths of faith and the facts of science cannot be in conflict with each other; for God is the Author of both.”

Alcuin Short Course Reason: One God

Wednesday, October 6

Vatican I solemnly defined the natural knowability of God; that is, man’s ability to know God’s existence and his properties with certitude by reason alone. In this short course, we will look at how philosophy and science enable us to know the preambula fidei as we explore St. Thomas’ Treatise on the One God

Signature Event Bl. Alcuin of York Lecture & Award Ceremony

Thursday, October 7, 5:00 PM

Join the Alcuin Institute on October 7th for our annual Bl. Alcuin of York Lecture & Award Ceremony! This year, we are honoring Dr. Andrew Willard Jones, who will in turn honor us with a lecture entitled The Weakness of Caesar and the Power of the Cross: How Martyrdom Defeats Tyrants

Socratic Convivium What is Truth?

Wednesday, October 20, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Join the Alcuin Institute for one of our signature Convivia—our fancy way of saying food, friendship, and good conversation! In this first gathering, we will take a look at Aristotle, St. Thomas Aquinas, and St. Augustine to see if we can answer the age-old question “Quid est Veritas?”—“What is Truth?”

Socratic Convivium Faith & Reason

Wednesday, December 1, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Join the Alcuin Institute for one of our signature Convivia—our fancy way of saying food, friendship, and good conversation! This time, we will examine some passages from Scripture, along with a short selection from Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, to see if we can discern the proper relationship between Faith & Reason!

Cultural Event Series St. John’s Day Wine Blessing Ceremony

Sunday, December 26, 12:00 PM

Join us as we revive this ancient tradition of our faith! This family-friendly celebration will start with a noon Mass at Holy Family Cathedral, followed by a social, the blessing of wine, and a reception with delectable desserts!

Alcuin Short Course Faith: Trinity

January 5, 7:00 PM - February 23, 8:30 PM

This short course will build upon the topics explored in the Fall. Whereas St. Thomas’ Treatise on the One God considers those truths about God which can be known by reason alone, but which can also be known by faith, his Treatise on the Triune God considers those truths about God which can only be known by Revelation.

Socratic Convivium Scripture & Tradition

Wednesday, February 2, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Join the Alcuin Institute for one of our signature Convivia—our fancy way of saying food, friendship, and good conversation! In this session, we will read from the Fathers (as well as Pope St. Paul VI) to try to reconcile an apparent contradiction between Scripture & Tradition!
