 |  NCR Today

Today, the 13th anniversary of the death of Cardinal Joseph Bernardin of Chicago, the Catholic Theological Union of Chicago issued a statement saying that the Catholic Common Ground Initiative, founded by Bernardin just months before his death, will be coming home to Chicago.

As Jerry Filteau explains, in his story posted to the NCR web site today, The reason the Initiative is moving to CTU is that the National Pastoral Life Center in New York, a major force in Catholic sociological analysis and pastoral development of U.S. parish leadership and lay ministry over the past 25 years, is closing its doors at the end of November.
