The Theology Department invites you to a round table discussion with Fr.
Anthony Gittins, C.S.Sp. on *Faith, Culture, Praxis: Doing Anthropology and
Theology in a Global Village*. As Christianity approaches its 500th year in
the Philippines, theologians and religious educators encounter a number of
contemporary challenges. The discussion with Fr. Gittins attempts to
respond to these challenges by exploring how to do interdisciplinary
research and teaching in the confluence of theology and anthropology. The
event will be on *January 12, Friday*, from *9:30 to 11:30 AM* at the *Faber
Hall Function Room 101*.
