Presentation: Who is St. Paul? @ Monastery Immaculate Conception
Nov 6 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Presentation: Who is St. Paul? @ Monastery Immaculate Conception

Who is St. Paul and what did he write?

Presentation by Fr. Eugene Hensell, OSB

Many people who read Saint Paul do not like what they read.  They find that Paul contradicts himself.  He appears to be against women and rather rigid.  The reason for all this is that the New Testament presents three different versions of Saint Paul.

Join us for TWO evenings of presentations on November 6 and 7, by Fr. Eugene Hensell, OSB from St. Meinrad as he uncovers the three different versions of St. Paul and discover who the real Saint Paul is.

The presentations will be held at Monastery Immaculate Conception in Ferdinand, Indiana. Registration begins each evening at 6:30 p.m. with the presentation from 7-8:30 p.m. The cost is $15 for one session or $25 for both sessions. You may register by contacting the monastery at 812-367-1411 ext. 7345. Walk-ins are invited.

Fr. Eugene Hensell, OSB is a monk of Saint Meinrad Archabbey, has a doctorate in Scripture and is an associate professor of Scripture in the Seminary and School of Theology.  Currently , he is in much demand giving biblical retreats to laity, religious groups, and clergy throughout the country.
