God’s Mechanics: How Scientists and Engineers Make Sense of Faith

September 29 @ 7:00 pm

 

The University of St. Michael’s College Christianity and Culture Program, the Toronto Jesuit History Research Group, and the Toronto Chapter of the Society of Catholic Scientists* present God’s Mechanics: How Scientists and Engineers Make Sense of Faith

 Br. Guy J. Consolmagno, SJ Director, Vatican Observatory

(“The Pope’s Astronomer”)

Thursday, September 29, 2022

7:00 p.m Alumni Hall 400 — 121 St. Joseph Street, Toronto

RSVP: usmc.principalsoffice@utoronto.ca

How does religion work in a society shaped by science and technology? How do scientists and engineers practice their religions? How in particular does a Jesuit brother, and an MIT graduate with a PhD in planetary science, make sense of his Catholicism?

God‘s Mechanics examines the personal religious life and theology of scientists and engineers based on conversations in California’s Silicon Valley and a first-person confession from a Jesuit scientist and astronomer at the Vatican Observatory.

*With funding from the John Templeton Foundation
