Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial?

with Br. Guy Consolmagno, S.J.


June 16, 2015

7 p.m.

Jordan Hall of Science


Br. Guy is going to chat about this and other questions from emails he is receiving as an astronomer of the Vatican Observatory. "Would you baptize an extraterrestrial?" Good question ... "What happened to poor Pluto? ... What was the Star of Bethlehem?"  


All these questions are at the very intersection of faith and science. Interested in an answer? Or do you have even more questions but never found the right person to ask them? Well, now is your chance: come and join us on June 16 at 7 pm in the Jordan Hall of  Science on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. We are waiting for your questions! 

We want your questions! If you sign up for a ticket in time, you will have the opportunity to ask the "Pope's astronomer" your personal question about science and faith. 

If you purchase your tickets before June 1, 2015 (postmark) You may also choose between the "$5 cash back" and a copy of his latest book which he co-wrote with his colleague Fr. Paul Mueller, S.J.: Would you Baptize an Extraterrestrial?
