The Cleveland and Youngstown Catholic Charities Diocesan Social Action offices are sponsoring a June 27 panel discussion on hydraulic fracturing or fracking in drilling for natural gas.

It will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. at St. Hilary Catholic Church, 2750 W. Market St, Fairlawn.

Speakers will be Peter MacKenzie, vice president of operations for the Ohio Oil and Gas Association; Dr. John Stolz, director of the Center for Environmental Research and Education at Pittsburgh’s Duquesne University; and Dr. James E. Schaefer, associate professor of systematic theology at Marquette University.

The program is designed to be educational with pros and cons on fracking as well as containing a Catholic theological reflection.
