The Search Video Series, Feb. 4 - March 23

Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish in O’Fallon is hosting a special video series that tackles the key questions of every human heart: Why are we here? What's life all about? What happens when we die? Parishioners are encouraged to invite those with no faith to participate in The Search, an Augustine Institute seven-part series, Feb. 4 – March 23.

The Search is an innovative video series that answers the fundamental questions about the meaning of life. In seven beautifully filmed episodes, Chris Stefanick and experts from multiple fields of science, medicine, psychology, art, and religion examine our place in the larger story of existence.

Whether you are a practiced inquirer or a jaded skeptic, The Search will speak to you. You may be reassured by some parts, and challenged by others. Either way, you will find a lot here to think about. And when all is said and done, life’s questions demand to be answered.

“Ideally, watching the video with others allows us to talk about the questions raised and give answers or share more questions as a group,” says Assumption Pastor, Father Nicholas Kastenholz. “Our parishioners are encouraged to invite people who have no faith to watch, and after our discussions, send the link to someone else to watch.”

The video series will be held in the Meyer Room of the Parish Hall (located below the church), Feb. 4 – March 23 on the following days:

􀁸 Monday mornings, 9–10 a.m.
􀁸 Tuesday evenings, 7–8 p.m.
􀁸 Wednesday evenings, 6:15–7:15 p.m.
