Phil Sandoval Live at the Sacramento Catholic Forum

Phil Sandoval Live at the Sacramento Catholic Forum

You're Invited!

Phil SandovalOur very own Phil Sandoval will be speaking at the Sacramento Catholic Forum on March 17th, 2016.  The topic Phil will be covering is Being Catholic in the Workplace

Living our Catholic faith can be a difficult challenge in the real world for many people; applying the teachings of Christ can seem impractical, outdated, even threatening to one's livelihood and social life. Using decades of experience in the high tech and mental health fields, Phil will cite and reflect on examples where his own Catholic faith came in direct conflict with corporate, social, and even mental health values. These examples facing a practicing Catholic range from supporting traditional marriage to wearing ashes on Ash Wednesday, and counseling others on social and moral issues.  There are solutions and comfort to these challenges if we are willing to fully live out our faith.

Tickets are $30.00 prepaid online
