The editors of America have asked a selection of theologians and bishops to respond to the article, "Beyond Catechesis" (9/12) by Michael G. Lawler and Todd A. Salzman. In the coming weeks, we hope to add more responses to this page. We will also continue the conversation on the role of Catholic universities with an article by Cardinal Donald W. Wuerl, which will appear in the September 26 issue.

UPDATE (9/19): Cardinal Wuerl's article has just been published online.

UPDATE (10/17): Read the latest response by Thomas Rausch, S.J.

Our symposium begins with articles by Thomas Groome, Bishop Thomas Curry and Vincent Miller.
