The presentation is geared toward youngsters in grades six through 12, college students, parents, grandparents, friends, and faithful who would like to hear Father Spitzer’s take on this topic.

Father Spitzer is president of the Magis Center. According to site’s Webpage, “Father Spitzer was president of Gonzaga University from 1998 to 2009. 

“He has made many TV appearances including: ‘Larry King Live’ (debating Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow), the ‘Today Show’ (debating on the topic of active euthanasia), The History Channel in ‘God and The Universe,’ a multiple part PBS series ‘Closer to the Truth,’ and the ‘Hugh Hewitt Show.’

“He currently appears weekly on EWTN in ‘Father Spitzer’s Universe.’”

This presentation is designed to answer questions from students in middle school and older as research has shown that the average age when a child decides against religion is 13 years old.  Most parents or teachers are not equipped to answer questions from their children when they ask about myths learned either from their friends or the Internet. 

Substantial time will be allocated for Q&A to ensure understanding and clarity from all audience participants. Also, available online, Father Spitzer’s Credible Catholic modules are designed to help address challenges facing students when it comes to the formation of their faith.
