Call to Action is Coming!!!


Call to Action is coming to Milwaukee again this fall. There will be a little bit of a Catholic springtime on the weekend of November 2-4. One of the most promising speakers that will be coming is Robert McClory. He's giving a presentation called: The Church WILL be Democratized: The Why and the How. He's a professor emeritus at Northwestern and will be giving his presentation Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.

If you've never been to Call to Action, it's worth going. It's the largest organized Catholic event I can think of in America where true intellectual dialogue is welcome. But conservatives beware, if you give as an arguement: "The Pope says so," that will not be good enough. Popes have been wrong plenty in the past. Call to Action's web site is http://www.cta-usa.org/. It's less expensive to go if you sign up by July 15th. I must admit that this is one of those shining gems in our Milwaukee Archdiocese. We are so lucky to have it here every year.

A Faithful Catholic

Here's a (money-saving?) version of his talk. You mentioned he's a professor, but the article more specifically says he's a professor of journalism.

Better hope that your bishop doesn't get the same idea Bruskewitz did, or the Call to Action members will have to go incognito to take communion. The Vatican won't back you up, which isn't a surprise. Call To Action Nebraska in action (or inaction).
