For those of you unaware of Fr Spitzer please take the time to check out his work - Faith and Reason in action. And of course he can be held up as a role model that the Church is NOT anti-Science. The mission of his Magis Center is: To explore and share the close connection between reason and faith as revealed by new discoveries in astrophysics and philosophy.
The Videos are worth checking out. View them in order (12 of them 10 mins each) yea it will take some time but worth it. Great for Home School lessons.
