Drinks with Dominicans

Drinks with Dominicans

Open to all ages.
Space is limited - RSVPs are required to attend.
Holy Rosary Church pays a food/beverage minimum to reserve the space. Please order food and/or beverages at this event to help offset that cost.
Speaker: Br. Joseph Selinger, O.P.
Topic: The Incarnate Word: Fount of Wisdom
Description: The Ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle famously declared that “all people by nature desire to know.” In doing so, he gave expression to the fundamental human desire for wisdom. What is wisdom, and where do we find it? Many people today turn to new age spiritualities, eastern religions, or popular science for answers. Others, such as the Three Wise Men, seek wisdom in a babe lying in a manger. These wise men sought wisdom in Jesus of Nazareth, who the Church proclaims as the Incarnate Word of God. In this talk, Br. Joseph Selinger, O.P. will outline how the human desire for wisdom is fulfilled in Jesus Christ. Only Jesus Christ, as the Incarnate Word, can lead us away from the foolishness of “the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age” towards the wisdom of God: “a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began.” (1 Corinthians 2:6-7)
Bio: Br. Joseph Selinger O.P. was born in Vancouver Canada and studied Information Technology at the British Columbia Institute of Technology. Interested in the priesthood, he earned a Bachelor of Arts with a major in philosophy at the Collège Universitaire Dominicain in Ottawa, run by the Canadian Dominicans. After completing his degree, he entered the Western Dominican Province as a novice in 2014.

Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Feb

7:00 PM19:00

Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary

On Candlemas Day, Friday, February 2 at 7 PM, the women of Cantores in Ecclesia will sing Josef Gabriel Rheinberger’s Missa in g, Op. 187, for the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which is perhaps the most ancient of all feasts of the Blessed Virgin, for we find it established at Jerusalem in the fourth century. The words of Simeon’s Canticle Lumen ad revelationem gentium have given rise to the institution of a procession with lighted candles, which symbolize Christ the spiritual light. The prayer of the blessing of candles and the antiphons of the procession make this rite one of the most magnificent of the whole year.
