Please join us for a virtual presentation by Prof. Predrag Cicovacki (the College of the Holy Cross) on Tuesday March 30, 2021, 2:15-3:15 PM ET.

What is the meaning of life? Does life have a meaning inherent to it, or do we give life a meaning of our own? Is there any point to existence? In times when life seems to ask too much of us, why should we go on?
