BESt Meeting – Group Discussion / Seminar: Making Good Choices with Fr. John Meehan

April 5 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

Hello,
Hope you are all having a great start to spring so far. I am very excited to bring something a little different for the season of Lent. Most of our talks involve a topic of bioethics in particular, but it is equally as important for us to learn how to discern well. Not only do our day-to-day ethical dilemmas matter – we must be intentional about our whole lives (i.e. our vocation). We will hear from Fr. John Meehan and have a casual conversation to share what we have been discerning in our lives.
