The Church and Youth & Continuing to Make Lent Great Again!

Mehnaz Afridi & Fred Parrella

On this episode of JustLove, Monsignor Kevin Sullivan will be speaking with  Fred Parrella, Professor of Theology in the Department of Religious Studies at Santa Clara University in California,  and Mehnaz Afridi, Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Manhattan College in the Bronx. 

Msgr. Sullivan and Prof. Parrella – who has been teaching at the Jesuit university based in Silicon Valley for 40 years – will be discussing the religious faith and practice of today’s college students, and what their often self-description as “spiritual, but not religious” bodes for the future, and what – if anything – can be done to counter this trend.

Prof. Afridi – who is also the Director of the Holocaust, Genocide and Interfaith Education Center at Manhattan College will be discussing the practices of fasting, charity/service, and prayer in the Islamic Tradition as a continuation of our Lenten conversations on “Making Lent Great Again 2017!”
