Upcoming Lecture on Deconversion by Beaudoin and Hornbeck

Help My Unbelief! Exploring Deconversion in Catholicism

Many Catholics are redefining their relationship
with the church -- if not leaving it completely. Why?
That’s the question Fordham University professors
Tom Beaudoin and Patrick Hornbeck will explore,
as they lead a discussion on “deconversion” or
change in religious affiliation in American Catholicism.

Who’s making the change? What’s involved?
What is it like to re-imagine one’s relationship with
Catholicism? What are the implications for the
church, theology and society? Beaudoin and Hornbeck
will address these questions and share research
on this widespread issue.
