Theology by the Slice

Once a week, the members of our society gather together on Zoom for an hour of theological discourse. We listen to a speech form a guest speaker about a theological topic

The topics presented upon have been wide in scope, and we have featured an equally broad variety of speakers, from professors and priests to theologians and philosophers. The many angles from which theology and life in the Church are explored allow the members of our society (and everyone else in attendance) to garner a great depth of knowledge about the faith, and so delve deeper into the mystery of God.

A question-and-answer session after each presentation allows for the topic at hand to be explored in even greater depth.

Eucharistic Adoration

Every Thursday night, the members of our society gather in the St. Joseph's Chapel, kneeling in adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament. This holy hour is perhaps the single most important function of the society, for it is an extended time of reverent silence, in which the mystery of the Eucharist may be adored, and the Lord may work his way into each of our hearts and fill them with his love and truth.

After an hour of adoration, we conclude with Benediction and the prayer of the divine praises. Adoration begins and ends with holy music, so as to lift our hearts and minds up to God, who lies exposed before us in the monstrance. There is also the opportunity to go to confession during adoration.

Once a semester, we conduct a vigil, in which the Blessed Sacrament lies exposed for an extended period. These vigils are begun and concluded with Holy Mass, and the evening includes recitations of the Rosary, and the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy, and individual silent prayer.
