Laudetur Iesus Christus! Please mark your calendars for a special seminar on November 15-16 at St. Mark parish entitled Evolution & the Culture of Death: Unmasking the Roots of Today’s Abortion Movement. This special 2-day seminar presents the traditional Catholic teaching on creation and unmasks the roots of today’s culture of death. The event is being organized by St. Mark Respect Life, Carolina Pro-Life Action Network, and featuring the Kolbe Center for the Study of Creation. The CLMC will also be supporting the event.
The presentation will be of particular interest to Latin Mass families as it will present the Church’s traditional teaching on creation and the origins of man, as taught by Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition. It will also show how cutting edge science is confirming what both Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition have taught.
Much of the Traditional Latin Mass, its calendar, traditions, and Douay Rheims Bible translations beautifully present the traditional doctrine of creation from the Ember Days, Rogation Days, to the ancient (Pre-55) Easter Vigil. The Eastern Rite liturgies and traditions also richly present this doctrine.
The event will be held at St. Mark parish (14740 Stumptown Road, Huntersville). The Friday Mass has not been finalized yet. The Mass on Saturday will be Novus Ordo. Below are the details:

Today’s culture of death permeates all aspects of our society and culture. Many souls are being lost, and innumerable unborn children are being killed by abortion and abortifacient contraception. In order to roll back the culture of death and restore a culture of life, Catholics must unmask the roots of the abortion movement, which lie in Darwinism and molecules-to-man evolution, and see how it influences today’s culture.
- Did humans evolve from apes and lesser beings?
- How did (and still does) evolution influence Planned Parenthood and other advocates of birth control, sterilization, eugenics, and abortion?
- How is the culture of death linked to evolution?
- What is the traditional doctrine of creation and how can it help win back fallen away Catholics – especially the youth?
- Attendees will learn what Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition teach on creation and the origins of man, and how cutting edge science is confirming both Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition.
No cost but a free will offering will be taken: Event includes Friday snacks/refreshments and Saturday light breakfast and pizza lunch. RSVP is appreciated but not required. For questions please contact Mike FitzGerald at respect.life(at)stmarknc.org
The Kolbe Center for the Study of Creation is a Catholic apostolate founded in 2000 to educate the public, especially Catholics on creation and the origins of man. Its work has been endorsed among many including, Bishop Athanasius Schneider of Kazakhstan (who visited us at St. Ann in 2017), and by exorcist/theologian Fr. Chad Ripperger.
