Join the Alcuin Institute for Catholic Culture for our annual Faith & Culture Conference! Featuring keynote speakers Dr. Jared Staudt, Dr. Joshua Hren, and Dr. Aaron Henderson, and highlighting the work of local artist Hollie Stokes, we will examine the importance and significance of art & beauty in communicating God's self-revelation. Participants will learn of the various ways that the Church has historically used art to communicate the truth of God and His creation, and explore some ways that Catholics today can continue the beautiful artistic traditions of the Church, and communicate the truth of God to an aesthetically deadened age. Registration for the event is $12, and includes conference admission, lunch, and an afternoon social. Catholic School Personnel can receive three (3) CSO ongoing formation hours for attending this event; contact your principal for more information. Admission for Clergy, Religious, and CSO personnel is free. For more information, please contact Becky Holder at
