WHAT:
Dr. Robert Llizo presents, “How Athens Became A Suburb of Jerusalem: The Bible And Greek Philosophy",” a course for adults introducing them to basic philosophy imbedded within the Bible by its authors and used by early commentators, preachers, apologists, and pastors (the Church Fathers).

This is designed to help us, modern Catholic Christians living in a secular world with secular assumptions, learn to read the Scriptures as they were intended to be read. There is no reason to embrace the false dichotomies of “faith vs. science,” or “physical vs. spiritual,” that so many take for granted as truth. This course should help in bridging the gaps!

WHEN:
On seven (7) Sunday mornings this summer at 10AM, between the 9AM and the 11AM Mass, as listed in this Facebook event and on the registration website.

WHERE:
At Blessed John Henry Newman Catholic Church: (In the Busch Firm/Queen of Life Chapel: 2532 Dupont Drive, Irvine, CA 92612).

Theology on Tap

Title: God and the Quantum
Speaker:  Prof. Andrew N. Jordan

Prof. Jordan will give a brief introduction to quantum physics, and reflect on how ideas in quantum physics and information theory can enlighten our understanding of God. He will argue the main contribution quantum physics gives theological thought is new analogies about apparently contradictory aspects of the divine nature and the concept of information as the most spiritual physical thing.

Food truck will be there!
______________

Jordan was raised in Dallas, Texas.  His B.S. in physics and mathematics is from Texas A&M and his PhD in theoretical physics is from UC Santa Barbara.  After a three year postdoc at the University of Geneva, Switzerland, he has been professor of Physics at the University of Rochester in New York since 2006.  Prof. Jordan has received the NSF CAREER award, and was named a Simons Fellow in theoretical physics in 2017. With more than 100 scientific publications and 4000 citations, his research interests include quantum information, measurement and control, quantum metrology, quantum thermodynamics, the mesoscopic physics of electron transport, and quantum optics.  Married with four children, he was raised in the Episcopal church, enter the Catholic Church in 2012, and is a founding member of St. Alban’s church, Rochester, a member of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter.  He is enjoying his year-long sabbatical in Orange County, attends Blessed John Henry Newman parish, and is working with colleagues at Chapman University and around the world.

Theology on Tap

Topic: Conversion Story
By: Father Bartus

As facilitator of Theology on Tap - Orange County, Father Bartus has never yet himself been a speaker at it, but has been asked to tell his conversion story.

From Southern Baptist/non-denominational, to skeptic, to Presbyterian, near-skeptic (mere Christianity), to Episcopalian/Anglican (Calvinist variety to high church Anglo-Catholic variety), to Roman Catholic, come hear Father's conversion story. There is no "Damascus Road" element in this, but rather a string of discoveries from studying history, theology, apologetics, philosophy, liturgy, and ecclesiology. Don't worry if you're not an expert in any of these, hopefully some information will be helpful; if you are one, you may be able to add to the conversation!

Father will also discuss the challenges in converting with bringing in people into the Church with him, explain the evangelizing mission of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter (the non-geographical diocese Pope Benedict XVI established), and Orange County's parish of Blessed John Henry Newman in Irvine.

Advent Lessons & Carols
Dec

Advent Lessons & Carols

Come join us for our annual Advent Lessons & Carols. Saturday, December 16, 2017!

Possibly the best-known Christmas service in the Western world is the festival of Nine Lessons and Carols. This service celebrates the birth of Jesus by telling the story of the fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus in a series of short readings from the Bible. The readings are interspersed with carols, choral music, and congregational singing of hymns. The format for this service originated in England in 1918 at King’s College, Cambridge, England, and thus began a tradition that is now almost 100 years old. A candle-lit service of Advent Lessons and Carols at Blessed John Henry Newman Catholic Church opens the season of Advent with readings, prayers, and carols sung by the St. Cecilia Choir (our parish choir) and the Tallis Chapel Society (our professional choir), both directed by Dr. Sandra Fryling.

Reception to follow in the cellar.
