My talk on The New Evangelization from November 15, 2012 is now on my blog for your listening pleasure. This was the last talk from the Adult Faith Formation Series 2012 that myself and Fr. Chad King, Parochial Vicar of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish in Scottsdale, Arizona presented as an introduction to the Year of Faith.
It was a short five part series that included The Dangers to Religious Freedom from the HHS Mandate, Voting with a Catholic Conscience, A Night with the Saints, the Basics of the Second Vatican Council, and the aforementioned talk from above. The first talk in this series was presented by Nikolas Nikas, President of the Bioethics Defense Fund and the second talk was given by Bradley Hahn, Attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom.
Beginning January 10 till March 21, 2013, Fr. Chad King and I will present Fr. Robert Barron’s – THE CATHOLICISM SERIES on Thursday mornings and evenings. The morning session will run from 9:30-11:30 AM and the evening session will run from 7:00-9:00 PM. The classes will be held in Rhoady-Lee and Room 152A at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Scottsdale. If you live in the Phoenix Metropolitan area and have not seen this series yet, I would encourage you to come and learn about your faith. This series is simply amazing!
Two fantastic quotes from my talk from men that are greater than I –
“At its heart, the New Evangelization is the re-proposing of the encounter with the Risen Lord, his Gospel, and his Church to those who no longer find the Church’s message engaging.” – Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington, D.C.
“The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead Catholics by conviction.” – Rev. Terrance Henry, President of Franciscan University of Steubenville
