Region V of the Province of St. Joseph

Lecture Series

Several times each year, St. Pius V hosts a free lecture on topics important to the Church today. Lectures are usually on a Saturday and are usually given by a friar from the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, DC. We typically record one lecture per year, although 2017-2019 instead saw a three-year retreat series by Fr. Carlos Quijano, O.P.; Fr. John Paul Walker, O.P.; and Fr. John Corbett, O.P., respectively.

Most Recent Lecture:  Faithfully Catholic: Voting in the 2016 Election

As a Catholic, am I required to vote? Can I just pray? How do I know how to vote? Should I vote for the lesser of two evils?

If you've asked yourselves these questions, then this talk can help answer them. This talk by Fr. Thomas Petri, O.P., focuses on the Catholic moral principles we need to know as we discern how to vote. This talk was given at Mount de Sales Academy in Catonsville, MD on Saturday, October 29, 2016.
