Archbishop Charles J. Chaput hosted the final installment of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Year of Faith Lecture Series on Tuesday, Oct. 1 at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Wynnewood. His presentation, titled “Fire Upon the Earth: A Call to Conversion and the New Evangelization,” appealed to the crowd of approximately 300 in attendance. Following his lecture Archbishop Chaput took questions from the crowd.
Archbishop Chaput previously described the Year of Faith Lecture Series by saying, “Through these lectures, we hope to offer Philadelphia Catholics during the Year of Faith a deeper understanding of the true meaning of faith, its authentic content and its orientation towards the transformation of the world around us.”
The Year of Faith is being celebrated throughout the Archdiocese of Philadelphia as the Universal Church commemorates the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council. The year concludes at the end of November.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
