A Virtual Presentation

How Evolution is Changing our Faith in the 21st Century

with Diarmuid O'Murchu

With the impact of modern science, cosmology, and information technology, our human consciousness is being stretched to ever new levels of understanding. Exciting for some and bewildering for others, this is an evolutionary process that will impact on every aspect of our lives, including our growth in faith, as we move deeper into the 21st Century.
