Saints Patrick & Raphael Parish will host a five-part Lenten lecture series, "Rediscover Your Spiritual Roots," at 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays, Feb. 17 to March 16, at the Parish Center.

The lecture series, which is designed to address a number of important themes in the Catholic intellectual tradition, will focus on Lenten topics including sin, stewardship, propriety, and the passion of Christ.

The free program features a line-up of religious scholars.

William Fahey, president, Thomas More College of Liberal Arts, will open the series on Feb. 17 with "Through the Eye of the Needle with Two Portly Men: Insights from G.K. Chesterton and Hilaire Belloc on Catholic Social Teachings."

The public is invited.
