'Lost' Conference Videos Online

In our Signs of the Times this week, Bill McGarvey provides an overview of the provocative weekend conference on 20-something Catholics, sponsored by the Francis and Ann Curran Center for Catholic Studies and the Fordham Center for Religion and Culture last month entitled, "Twentysomething and the Church: Lost?"  It was a remarkable gathering of scholars, practitioners, experts (and 20somethings) including Peter and Margaret O'Brien Steinfels, Robert Putnam, David Campbell, James Davidson, Donna Freitas, Colleen Carroll Campbell, the Rev. Robert Beloin, Tom Beaudoin, and Bill McGarvey, among others.  The complete video proceedings are now online here.
