CEPHAS 2018: Human Freedom and Ethics in the World Today

CEPHAS 2018 invites adult participants (aged 18+) to register for its seventh residential course at Stone, 2-5 August, 2018 (arrivals from 5pm on Thursday; depart 3pm on Sunday). 

CEPHAS 2018 will explore the Thomistic framework underpinning Pope John Paul II’s 1993 encyclical, Veritatis Splendor [The Splendour of the Truth]. The long-weekend is an opportunity to take a step back to reflect on core human questions about freedom, ethics, happiness, sin, moral law, conscience, and purpose. 

CEPHAS courses include philosophy and theology workshops, guest lectures (with good wine, questions and discussion), and free time for relaxation, private reading and reflection.

The sessions are organised so that participants, if they would like, may join in the daily liturgy of the Stone Community.
