Many people today believe that faith and reason are incompatible and completely opposed to one another, but through the ages, science has learned from religion and vice versa. The presenters will point out some historical examples of the interaction of science and religion in Western culture, examine the limitations of each, and suggest how important it is for cooperation between the two in the present age.

Fr. Bryan Stitt is a former engineering student who realized that he was missing some of the big picture of life, switched to studying philosophy and theology, and eventually was ordained as a Catholic priest. He is currently the pastor at St. Mary's Church in Canton.
