In the wake of Pope Benedict’s successful visit to the UK and the weekend news that a third Anglican bishop has announced his decision to cross the Tiber, I realize it’s the right time to prepare for the 2nd Annual Anglo-Catholic Reunification Day, which will take place this Wednesday.
Last year, you see, on the day that it was announced that Pope Benedict would create a “perso... More

The 4th Annual Catholic Prayer Breakfast will be held in Washington, D.C. this weekend (April 12-14th), with a keynote address by Abp. Wuerl on “Christianity and Our National Identity.” President Bush has attended past NCPB’s but that’s not gauranteed this time (and probably won’t happen).
In addition, Scott Hahn, and Richard John Neuhaus will be giving talks.
I might be attending this local theology-on-tap this week. I’ve been to a couple of these events before and found them very enjoyable (and even a little educational):

CNA has a brief report on the Detroit Catholic Men’s Conference that met last weekend (which I was unfortunately unable to attend).
Be alerted, the Call to Holiness conference is taking place at the end of this month.
I’m going to be linking to the Call to Holiness 2007 conference for the next week or so, just to help spread the word.
I have Bishop Flores as a professor this semester, had Robert Fastiggi last year, and Fr. Neil Roy is a friend of mine from way back.
Good folks! I recommend anyone in the Detroit area check it out.
