The Philosopher’s Underground: A 4-Part Series

Discover Your Story with FRP’s latest series: The Philosopher’s Underground!

While philosophy may seem ethereal and unnecessary, it really is the opposite. Philosophy is the pursuit of wisdom, of understanding. It seeks truth and meaning.  What’s more interesting than that?

Consider philosophy the foundation on which our understanding of our present world was built (think: underground!). The Philosopher’s Underground series will provide practical ways to understand and apply key philosophical principles…because we can’t understand our faith, our world, or even who we are meant to be without them!

The Philosopher’s Underground aims to engage young adults (20’s and 30’s) asking the deeper questions about life and it’s meaning. Our hope is that the content in this series will empower everyone who attends to live a more intentional life. How will you live the story you were made for?

The first session starts THIS Wednesday, November 14. It will be in conjunction with Louisville Young Catholic’s monthly Pub Night from 7:00-8:30pm at Saints Bar in St. Matthews.

All other sessions will be at the Patterson Education Center/Museum across from the Cathedral of the Assumption in downtown Louisville (also from 7:00-8:30pm). Mark the rest of the dates on your calendar HERE!

Check out our event page on Facebook for more information and updates as this series kicks off!

Interested in attending, but still have a few questions? Shoot us a message: info@familyrenewalproject.com.
We hope to see you there!

Wine & Wonder

We recently ended the very first session of our Women’s Book Group, Wine & Wonder.

Catholic Women's Book Club Louisville KY

Led by Aileen Delgado, the ladies met every other Tuesday night to discuss “The Authority of Women in the Catholic Church,” by Monica Miller. We were thrilled with the attendance and discussion! 

If you haven’t read the book, expect (1) to explore how women “exemplify the reality of the Church in relation to Christ and the ministerial priesthood*” and (2) a theological response to modern feminism and claims of gender irrelevance.

Of course, we recommend this book to every lady, starting as early as senior year of high school or freshman year of college. “I feel that it would be good for young women to learn about their feminine authority in the Catholic church early, but I also feel for women who are older it is never too late for them to learn and share that knowledge with others,” Aileen says.

“This book presents amazing view points that if we take the time to ponder on them, we could grow a little deeper in our faith.” Our prayer is that FRP can provide a space–through all of our programming– for men and women to grow deeper in their faith. All books chosen for our discussion groups will reflect this mission!

Wine & Wonder is a great way to get connected with women in your faith community. Regardless of which Parish you attend, we hope you’ll join us for our next session in the fall.

And even if reading isn’t your thing, stay up to date with all our events by subscribing to our email list (here)or by following us on Facebook and Instagram.

Have a suggestion for our next book? Let us know! We’ll bring the wine!

– Haley
