Pub Theology with Fr. David Garcia, “Pandemic Preaching”
March 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Father David Garcia joins us for another round of Pub Theology San Antonio as he shares about his new book “Pandemic Preaching.”
Pandemic Preaching helps inspire all who have been through this difficult time with powerful stories and sound theological reflection. The year of the COVID pandemic was a time like no other in modern history. A historical pandemic, a racial reckoning, a tense and bitterly divided political election, an insurrection at the capital, and the Texas record freeze created a year that will be long remembered. Preachers were charged with making some sense of what was happening and at the same time giving hope that the community would make it through this time together. Through a year of homilies based on the Catholic readings of Sundays and Feast days, Father David Garcia connects the stories of this historic year to the light of Scripture. The homilies weave human experiences with Hispanic culture and traditions as well as moral lessons and Catholic spirituality.
Fr. David Garcia is a retired priest from the Archdiocese of San Antonio, Texas, where he served for 44 years. During that time, Fr. Garcia was instrumental in the effort to have the Old Spanish Missions recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and also oversaw the multimillion-dollar restoration of San Fernando Cathedral. Fr. David served as pastor for several parishes in San Antonio, including the historic Mission Concepción. He also served as Senior Advisor for Clergy Outreach at Catholic Relief Services, the official international humanitarian and relief agency of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Pub Theology is hosted by Pastor Gavin Rogers. We are a dialogue group that meets to talk about faith, our community and creating the common good. All perspectives welcome. “Different Brews and Different Views”
