ONGOING FORMATION OPPORTUNITY
Aboriginal - Indigenous Theology Workshop
Indigenous Theology, commonly known as Teología India, is one of the most exciting and innovating theological developments in the last two decades. Indigenous Christians across the continent reflect on their communal experiences with God. Unfortunately, little is known about these beautiful theologies, and misconceptions and fears abound. In this rare three (3) hour workshop, we will learn its history, its central tenets, and its contributions to our faith and Catholic tradition.
August 14, 2021, 9a.m. to 12 p.m.
Zoom Event—Cost: $10.00
