About Alyssa Bormes | Popular Catholic author and speaker Alyssa Bormes is known for her gift of igniting a newfound sense of wonder in the Church using storytelling, humor and analogy. Her passion is to inspire others to take on greater personal responsibility for their faith and to grow in spiritual maturity. In her first book, The Catechism of Hockey, Bormes uses the metaphor of hockey and sports devotion to explain the responsibility of Catholic parents to raise their children in the teachings and observances of the Church. She wrote the forward for Contraception and Persecution, the powerful new book (April 2014) by Prof. Charles E. Rice, Professor Emeritus of the University of Notre Dame and Chesterton Academy Advisory Board member.
About the Cultura Vitae Lecture Series | The Cultura Vitae Lecture Series was established during Chesterton Academy’s inaugural academic year as an effort of the school to educate the greater community and to build what Pope John Paul II called “the culture of life.” To that end, the series is dedicated to bringing scholars and accomplished individuals to speak on a variety of issues that directly affect the protection of the human person, the family, and the building up of the common good.
