You are invited to a special lecture by Augustine Institute friend Dr. John Cuddeback of Christendom College. He will speak on Friendship: The Beginning, Means, and End of Evangelization.

Pope Francis calls friendship with God “the source and inspiration of all our efforts at evangelization.”(Evangelii Gaudium, 8). St. John Paul II wrote of making the Church a “school of communion,” which would empower its members to offer “deep and genuine friendship” to those around them (Novo Millenio Ineunte, 43). And Aristotle and Aquinas’s understanding of friendship—its kinds and requirements—provides a unique angle of insight into how to meet the challenges of the New Evangelization.​

Please join us in the atrium of the Institute at 7pm, with reception to follow.
