They will be given by father Baudoin ROGER, Chaplain of the Cathedral, responsible for the Department of Economics, man, society in College of the Bernardin.

Creation, the original Alliance

– Sunday, December 6:
The incarnation, God with us

– Sunday, December 13th:
The Trinity and the human person

– Sunday, December 20:

The social doctrine is the best kept secret of the Church and yet, "the teaching and dissemination of the social doctrine of the Church belong to its mission of evangelization: it is an essential part of the Christian message because this doctrine proposes the direct consequences in the life of society and it places the daily work and the struggle for Justice in the context of the witness given to Christ the Savior "(John Paul II, Centesismus Annus §5).
