The Culture Project, a young adult ministry, will present a new series of talks on “Love and Responsibility” at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Wynnewood.
Speaker Bill Donaghy will kick off the series on Friday, April 27 with “On Being an Authentic Lover: How Every Human Life is Made for Intimacy.”
Drinks and food will be served at 6:30 p.m., with the main presentation and discussion to follow at 7 p.m.
Donaghy’s talk will focus on what it means to fall — and to stay — in love. The presentation will address the demands, drama, desire and adventure of human love and marriage, as taught by John Paul II and experienced through the life of a husband and father.
Since 1999, Donaghy has worked in the fields of mission and evangelization in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Through his work with the Pontifical Mission Societies, Bill gave hundreds of talks on the spirituality of mission to young people throughout the greater Philadelphia area and beyond, creating a teaching and speaking ministry known as MissionMoment.org. In October of 2000, Bill was chosen to represent his country in a special tribute for the Jubilee of Missionaries in Rome. He received a simple cross from Pope John Paul II, who urged him to “bring Jesus back to your country.”
Donaghy completed the Institute Speakers Training program in 2005 and the Culture Project’s Head & Heart Immersion Course in January 2006. His speaking engagements have taken him throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, Chile, Papua New Guinea and Australia. He holds an Associates Degree in Visual Arts, a Bachelor’s in Philosophy and a Master’s in Systematic Theology.
After the discussion, participants are invited for drinks at McShea’s Restaurant and Bar (242 Haverford Avenue, Narberth).
