Cathedral Forum: (Un)palatable Parables, Provocative Puns and Peculating Priests Is This a Joke to You?


Come join us for some pre-Mardi Gras fun, as parishioner Thomas-Xavier Martin turns his rabbinical outlook on religious jokes. In the spirit of Carnival, we’ll share a lot of jokes (come prepared to tell your best one), but we’ll also discuss how religious humor might prod us to a better understanding of holiness, faith and identity and the correct “distance” to God.

The Cathedral Forum is a weekly lecture series with topics that range from theology, politics and spirituality to economics and literature. The forum regularly features prominent speakers from academia, the media, and journalism.
