Rebuilding Catholic Culture Mini-Conference Sept. 2-3 will feature Fr. Gregory Hrynkiw speaking on “Pinocchio: A Theological Tale for Our Times” at Saint Anne Parish, 217 Lenore Drive, Saskatoon.

Working from the famous Pinocchio story by Carlo Collodi, he will give four talks about what it means to be made in the image and likeness of God, and reflecting upon the spiritual, moral, and even political dangers of abandoning a Christian anthropology.  Reading this tale through a theological lens helps us in contemplating the deep problems of our current state and remind us of what it means to be free and fully human.

The opening keynote will be held at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 2, featuring a free dessert night (free will offering).

The full-day mini-conference Saturday, Sept. 3 requires pre-registration and features an opening Mass at 8 a.m., three talks, lunch, and a question period/social.  Cost of the full-day event is $50/person, $80/couple, and $20/student (includes lunch).  To reserve a ticket contact Dr. Celene Sidloski at csidloski@stmcollege.ca or phone (306) 715-1541.
