MANILA, Oct. 1, 2012— The Metro Manila-based Defensores Fidei Foundation will hold its 8th annual apologetics seminar this month on the theme “Blessed to be Catholic.”
The gathering aims to help participants respond to the moral and spiritual challenges or learn more about how to defend their faith with reason.
The seminar will take place at the Missouri Square Building, North Greenhills San Juan, and every Saturday starting October 13 until December 15.
Several members of the Catholic hierarchy will speak during the conference. Speakers also include priests, religious and lay leaders.
Organizers said the event will feature important topics like Sacraments, Church history, atheism and secularism, and Mariology.
Speakers include Bro. Marwil Llasos, OP, Fr. Stanislaus Kostka Baculanag, Carlos Palad, Fr. Carlos Estrada, and Chief de Vera.
The Defensores Fidei Foundation said it exists to “explain and defend” the Catholic doctrine.
“Our purpose is to strengthen Catholics in their faith by helping them to explain, from Scripture and the Magisterium, the most commonly misunderstood Catholic beliefs,” it said.
