Category: General Humanae Vitae Talking Circuit [Diocese of Kalamazoo]

Mon, 7/9

Humanae Vitae Talking Circuit: In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Pope Paul VI's last encyclical, Humanae Vitae, this talking circuit aims to revisit this important catechesis dealing with the Church’s teaching on the transmission of human life by looking at the philosophical, theological, scientific, and medical proofs evident within and discuss why this is so relevant in today's culture. Led by Mr. Jamin Herold (Executive Director, Parish Life & Lay Leadership for the Diocese of Kalamazoo) and Dcn. Don Bouchard, DO (President and Medical Director for Holy Family Healthcare), time will be provided at the end for a question and answer session.

Each of our five deanery's will be hosting this circuit, but please feel free to attend any or all of these. For flyers for each of the below events, please check in with or contact Tim McNamara ( if you have any questions. Thank you and God bless!
