St. Thomas Society for Science and Religion
St. Thomas College
One of the main objectives of this society is “to encourage greater understanding of the religious and spiritual significance of science for the benefit of humanity.” It includes members of faculty and staff as well as those of other institutions of higher learning, high schools, and the local community. This comprehensive program involves group discussion, seminars, symposia, an interdisciplinary newsletter, and competitions for students. Topics explored include comparative perspectives of the evolving relationships between theology and the natural sciences; activities to increase understanding of the impact of recent scientific discoveries on religious, moral and ethical values; and explorations of the influences of information technology in a spiritual context.
