Luigi Giussani Series on Faith and Modernity

Presented by The Sheen Center & Crossroads Cultural Center

Saturday, June 22, 2019 @ 6:00PM

A friend on the road to the Mystery

Msgr. Luigi Giussani is well-known as the founder of the Catholic movement Communion and Liberation. He is less known for being an original and innovative thinker and educator, who was able to break through the conventional opposition between liberalism and traditionalism, and to propose Christianity in a way that answers the challenges of our time. To make his thought known to a wider public, Crossroads, in collaboration with CL, has established the “Giussani Series on Faith and Modernity” to annually present a specific aspect of Fr. Giussani’s rich theological and pedagogical thought.
The 2019 Giussani Series will focus specifically on the distinctive features of Luigi Giussani’s proposal for Christian education.
