Fordham Conference: "Ministry to American Catholics"

Just a note to let people in the New York area know of a very good conference day we have coming up at Fordham, titled "Ministry to American Catholics," and sponsored by the Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education. It will take place on Friday 6 February.

In the morning, our discussion will focus on the changing demographics of Catholicism in the United States, and in the afternoon, on contemporary patterns of sexual decision-making among young Catholics, especially college students. Throughout, we will ask what these developments mean for Catholic ministry today.

If you’re in the neighborhood (generously defined), and invested in church work (again, generously defined), please consider coming for the day. We would like to welcome you to Rose Hill. You can read more about the conference day, and register, here.
