Dr. Weigel’s lecture on Evangelical Catholicism was a huge success. He spoke of a new wave of Catholicism that embraces two fundamental aspects of the Christian faith: friendship with Jesus and adherence to teachings of the Catholic Church. The dynamism of the two allows the faith to connect in both mind and heart. At the heart of which is the authentic celebration of the sacraments, particularly the Holy Eucharist which is the source and summit of the Christian faith.
We were pleased to have about 90 people in attendance, including Most Rev. Timothy A. McDonnell, Bishop of the Springfield Diocese. Bishop McDonnell opened our 50th anniversary celebration and the lecture series with prayer and asked for God’s blessing on our future anniversary events.
