Bishops to consider new document on preaching at fall meeting

 | 

"My dad used to say, 'I know what happened 2,000 years ago. I need to know how to live my life today.'"

These words, from Archbishop Robert J. Carlson of St. Louis, get to the heart of a new proposed document on preaching to be considered by the U.S. bishops at the fall general meeting in November.

The document, "Preaching the Mystery of Faith: The Sunday Homily," encourages preachers to connect the Sunday homily with people's daily lives.

Call To Action conference shifts to Louisville

 | 

The Catholic church reform group Call To Action will hold its annual conference Nov. 9-11 in Louisville, Ky., veering from its usual host city of Milwaukee. The shift in venue is part of the organization’s ongoing commitment to anti-racism and anti-oppression principles, said Call To Action communications and programs director Nicole Sotelo.

To reach out to new people in different parts of the country, future national conferences of the Chicago-based organization will alternate between various locations and Milwaukee, where it has been for the last 10 years, Sotelo said.
