Professor of Theology and Religious Studies Patrick Kelly, S.J. will present in the four-part webinar series, “Sport: Re-Thinking Tomorrow.” The series is presented by the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life and will be online every Thursday from Oct. 1-22. Each session will be 75 minutes long including opening remarks, keynote speaker and a 30-minute open Q&A session.
The webinar’s theme focuses on post-pandemic sports. As the world of sports adjusts to the new realities of COVID-19, the webinar will discuss a “reboot” of sports culture and a think tank of amateur to elite sports players developing initiatives that promote sport as an “arena of human activity where virtues can be fostered.” Fr. Kelly will give the introduction for the Oct. 8 webinar, “Giving the Best of Yourself: The Role of Sport for Life.”
