PISCATAWAY – The Diocese of Metuchen will host a talk on What the Bible Says About Moral Living on Thursday, March 24 at 7 p.m. in the St. John Neumann Pastoral Center. Sponsored by the Office of Catechesis, the two-hour program will be presented by Father John Fell, pastor of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Bernardsville.
In his talk, Fr. Fell will examine the scriptural foundations of Catholic morality and how the Church continues to guide moral living in the 21st century, helping individuals to overcome challenges and dilemmas of modern-day science and society.
Fr. Fell received an M.A. in Psychology from Duquesne University and Ph.D. in Sacred Theology from the Alphonsian Academy in Rome, Italy. He serves on the Board of Trustees and Ethics Committee of St. Peter’s University Hospital, New Brunswick.
The talk on moral living is part of the adult faith formation series entitled, “The Bible: Root of our Catholic Faith.” The series is designed to help Catholics better understand their biblical foundations and to explore Catholic beliefs, as found in – or as “rooted in” – Scripture.
The final topic of the series will be What the Bible Says About Suffering and Death on April 7 and the series will conclude on May 5 with an experience of different ways to pray with scripture.
The Bible series is free and is open to all who want to know more about biblical tradition as it relates to Bible Scripture. It is especially intended as a resource for those who are involved in their parish ministries including: deacons, RCIA candidates and sponsors, evangelization and adult faith formation teams, catechists and parish catechetical leaders, Catholic school teachers, young adults, youth ministers, pastoral council members and liturgical ministers.
