"Teaching at the Interface
between Science and Religion"

Free Science and Faith Institute Day for High School Teachers

Monday, June 5, 8:00 am- 4:00 pm
St. Patrick’s Seminary and University,
320 Middlefield Rd., Menlo Park

This one-day continuing education institute is free for administrators, science teachers, and religion / theology teachers from any Catholic high school in the region, and is worth 10 contact hours of professional development. Sponsored by the Archdiocese of San Francisco and the McGrath Institute for Church Life at Notre Dame University.

For complete information, and to register, go to the Institute for Church Life at Notre Dame University.  A flyer is here.

The focus of the day:   Science & Catholic Faith: Points of Integration

Catholic high schools increase their positive impact on students when religion is integrated across the curriculum. The Institute Day presenters are experts in making the important connections between religion and science. In the workshop presentations, participants learn more about Catholic teachings and themes as they relate to science. Participants will also come to understand how many topics usually covered in high school science intersect with larger issues relating to Catholic belief and practice.  During breakout sessions, teachers will discuss and develop strategies for implementing the dialogue between science and religion into their curriculum and teaching.

Facilitators:  
Ruth Ohm Sutherland, Ph.D.         Maria Gianna Ianucci, M.S., Ed.S.
Rev. John J. Piderit, S.J., Ph.D.      Melanie M. Morey, Ed.D.
