Parish Table Talk
- ChristLife National Training Conference: The annual gathering will take place April 20-22, 2016 at St. Philip Neri Parish in Linthicum Heights, MD. Meet a vibrant community of religious and lay leaders who are seeking to answer the Church’s call for the new evangelization. Archbishop Lori will be present to open the conference.
- Theology of the Body: ReverbCulture (a great blog for Catholic millennials) has featured an interesting article about the wider implications of Pope St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. The author particularly highlights Emily Stimpson’s book These Beautiful Bones: An Everyday Theology of the Body. Consider checking out both the book and the blog!
The Evolution of Marriage and Family life: You and your parishioners are cordially invited to join Edward Herrera, our new Director of Marriage and Family Life, for a Town Hall meeting to discuss the challenges facing marriage and family today. They will take place for four evenings in April at four different parishes.
