Father Thomas Rosica, CSB, CEO of Salt + Light Television, will be coming to Vancouver next week and is taking time out of his schedule to give two public talks.

The first talk will take place on Monday March 21 at St. Mark's College at noon in Plato's Cave, the school's café.

His topic at St. Mark's is "Plugged In: Is our Constant Connectivity Leading to Disconnect and Discontent?" It will feature Father Rosica speaking for 20 minutes and then answering questions posed by the audience.

The talk will discuss whether mass media trivializes religion and faith, and if digital dependency can hurt one's faith and even lead to atheism.

St. Mark's is located at 5935 Iona Dr. on the UBC campus.

Father Rosica will also be giving a talk at St. Francis de Sales Parish in Burnaby on Tuesday March 22 from 7 to 9 p.m.

Father Rosica was CEO and National Director of World Youth Day 2002. He will be giving the inside scoop on plans for WYD 2011 and share stories and insights of past World Youth Days.

St. Francis de Sales is located at 6656 Balmoral Street, Burnaby.
