Seville Local Group
Centro Pedro Arrupe de Sevilla
The Seville Local Group provides a â€œspace for dialogue and a meeting point for faith and the modern world, especially open to unbelief and inspired by Ignatian spirituality.â€ Devoted to including members of the community, the group aims to contribute to human and Christian education based in freedom and respect, justice and solidarity, dialogue and participation. Various groups within the larger initiative â€“ including a Bioethics Research group, founded in 1984 â€“ will focus on specified subject areas in matters of science, technology, and faith. Topics include: end of life issues, origins, and the ethical, theological, and religious aspects of science and faith in health and the medical profession. Society members offer lectures, seminars, and workshops for surrounding academic and professional communities and the general public. A complementary effort in the greater â€œSophia Iberia LSI networkâ€, the society will share the results of meetings and research with other groups in the Spanish LSI network. Members also seek publication in popular academic journals and share materials through website and email. Centro Pedro Arrupe de Sevilla provides matching funds.
