Readers of The B.C. Catholic know him as the “Shy Catholic,” but Graham Osborne won’t be shying away from anything this winter as he takes his one-man apologetics show on the road.

Ten more “Shy Catholic Conferences” are set to hit local parishes between Dec. 1 and March 9. The first took place Nov. 17 at Sacred Heart Parish in Delta.

“The whole point of this conference is to give Catholics solid answers to common questions they get in their everyday life,” Osborne told The B.C. Catholic.

He said conference attendees should expect to get some practical explanations to challenging theological questions they may face from Protestants, Jehovah Witnesses, and non-Christians.

Topics include: papal infallibility, the Eucharist, how Catholics interpret the Bible and understand tradition, understanding Mary and her role in the Church, purgatory, and indulgences.
