Join Fr. Gregory Uhrig for an exploration of the enduring power of Vatican II's teachings in our day. The course will be held on four consecutive Wednesdays from 10 am. – 11 a.m., beginning August 8. Based on a video series entitled Vatican II and the Church of the Third Millennium with Dr. Richard R.

He received his Ph.D. in systematic theology from the University of Notre Dame and is currently the president of the Catholic Theological Society of America. He has written numerous articles and 10 books on matters of ecclesiology, the Second Vatican Council, and the Magisterium. 

The following four sessions are part one of a two-part series. The second part of the course will take place in November.

The Church before the Council
