Archbishop John Nienstedt of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis will give the next breakfast talk in a series co-sponsored by St. Olaf Catholic Church and the John A. Ryan Institute for Catholic Social Thought at the University of St. Thomas.

The ecumenical “Faith and Work Breakfast” will be held from 7 to 8:30 a.m. Thursday, April 15, in Fleming Hall of St. Olaf Catholic Church, 215 S. Eighth St., Minneapolis.

In his talk, “Be Not Afraid: Overcoming Sin and Temptation in the Workplace,” Nienstedt will discuss the issue of sin and temptation in the workplace from the perspective of developing a Catholic morality.

Now in their 15th year, the Faith and Work Breakfasts deal with the personal challenges of faith-and-work integration and are designed for professionals from all faiths.  The theme of this year’s series is: "Sin at Work: A Contemporary Look at Vice and Virtue in the Workplace."

The cost of each Faith and Work Breakfast is $20, which includes a continental breakfast. Pre-registration is encouraged.  To make a reservation or for more information, call St. Olaf Catholic Church at (612) 332-7471, Ext. 255, or send an e-mail to .
