St. Luke Church will hold a talk "A Catholic Scientist's View of Darwin" by Glenn Sauer, associate professor of biology at Fairfield University, on Friday, March 1. The discussion, the third of five St. Luke Church First Friday Lectures, will take place at 8 p.m. in the church's community room, 49 Turkey Hill Road N.

The program is designed to serve as a catalyst to develop educational materials that will make science and religion an essential component of Catholic religious and science education nationwide, according to a news release.

The goal is to build a community of Catholic parish leaders, educators and university faculty around the integration of scientific knowledge and religious faith.

Sauer holds a bachelor of arts degree from Pennsylvania State University and a masters of science degree and a doctorate from the University of South Carolina.

In addition to his teaching responsibilities, he serves as project director of the "God and Modern Biology Program" at Fairfield University, the release states.

The lecture will be preceded by a wine and cheese reception at 7:30 p.m. The program is free and all are welcome.
