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.

The Year of Faith Lecture Series was sponsored by the Office for the New Evangelization of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.  (Video by Sarah Webb)
