KCHS students take part in Aquinas College forum

On Feb. 15-16, the Religion Department at Knoxville Catholic High School, under the direction of Sister John Catherine Kennedy, OP, took 14 students to Nashville to participate in a forum sponsored by Aquinas College. The forum, titled “Genesis: Chance or Purpose,” was led by Aquinas College faculty members and other distinguished scholars.

The students particularly enjoyed a talk titled “The Nature of Love” by Sister Jane Dominic, OP, as well as a talk titled “A Reflection on the Scientific Realities of Creation, Evolution and Redemption,” presented by Father Nicanor Austriaco, OP, a scientific adviser at the National Catholic Bioethics Center and professor at Providence College in Rhode Island.

In addition to attending the two-day talks, students attended morning prayer and Mass with the Dominican Sisters at the motherhouse.
