Rev. Thomas Hosinski C.S.C.
All are welcome to join the Garaventa Center in honoring distinguished theologian Fr. Tom Hosinski, C.S.C., as he offers his final lecture before retiring at the end of the spring 2016 semester. His lecture, “The Sacredness of the Ordinary,” is set for Wednesday, April 20, at 7:15 p.m., in Franz Hall Room 120.
The sacred and the ordinary are frequently distinguished and seemingly separated from each other. But reflection on divine omnipresence and on traditional ways of understanding the doctrine of creation and creaturely existence suggests a different view. In this talk, Fr. Hosinski will suggest that the sacred and the ordinary actually coincide and incorporate each other.
Fr. Hosinski has been teaching at the University since 1978. His publications include a book on the philosophy and philosophical theology of Alfred North Whitehead (Stubborn Fact and Creative Advance, 1993), a book on the contemporary understanding of God (tentatively entitled God-Talk in the 21st Century, 2017), and numerous scholarly articles.
The following faculty members have announced their retirement at the conclusion of the spring 2016 semester, according to Kathleen Staten, provost’s office:
- Robert Butler, environmental sciences
- Howard Feldman, business
- Drew Harrington, library
- Rev. Thomas Hosinski, C.S.C., theology
- James Seal, business
- Larry Lewis, business.
A ceremony for all 2016 retirees will take place on Friday, April 22, at 3:30 p.m., in Buckley Center Auditorium, followed by a reception in the Bauccio Commons board room.
For more information contact Staten at 7105 or email@example.com.
Shannon Mayer, physics, and Rev. Thomas Hosinski, C.S.C., theology, will discuss the possibilities surrounding the integration of science and faith when they present “Science and Religion” on Wednesday, April 10, at 4 p.m., in Buckley Center room 163. Their talk, sponsored by the Garaventa Center, is free and open to all.
Mayer will provide examples of how faith and science are integrated in the life of a professional scientist. Hosinski will reflect on how religion and science complement each other, so that together they give us a deeper understanding of reality. The lecture will be preceded by a brief ceremony presenting the annual Garaventa High School essay contest awards, beginning at 4 p.m. For more information contact the Garaventa Center at 7702 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
