Alaskans are invited to a presentation exploring some of the most difficult and challenging moral teachings of Jesus Christ as presented in his famous address — The Sermon on the Mount.

Dominican Fr. Dominic David Miachrowicz will look at this demanding teaching, which many dismiss as impossible. Following the lead of the Church Fathers, Pope St. John Paul II, and moral theologian Dominican Fr. Servais Pinckaers, the upcoming presentation will argue that modern Catholics can realistically make the Sermon on the Mount the central text of their moral lives.

Fr. Miachrowicz entered the Dominican Order in 2005 and was ordained to the priesthood in 2013. He holds a Master’s in philosophy with a focus on the metaphysics of Saint Edith Stein and Saint Thomas Aquinas. His theological studies are focused in moral theology, the writings of Pope Saint John Paul II, including his “Theology of the Body” as well as ancient and medieval teachings on the virtues and vices. Fr. Miachrowicz has served the past four years at Holy Family Cathedral in Anchorage. He moves to Seattle next month for a new post as pastor of Blessed Sacrament Parish.

The presentation begins at 7 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. for those who wish to order food and drinks. The evening will include a 45-minute talk, followed by a question and answer session until 8:30 p.m. For more information, visit the Catholics United for the Faith (Anchorage) Facebook page.

Attendees are encouraged to read the Gospel of Matthew, chapters 5-7 before the talk.
