Attention Washington, DC area readers!

Please join us for Lay Apostles: A Fulfillment of the Priestly Office, a talk by Father Michael Fones, OP on April 29, 2009, the feast of St Catherine of Siena, at 7 PM in Aquin Hall at the Dominican House of Studies, 487 Michigan Avenue, N.E., Washington, DC 20017 (Red Line: Brookland/CUA).

A description of the talk:

The Church exists to evangelize; yet few Catholics are prepared to share in that mission. Not only do Catholics themselves need to be evangelized, few have access to that formation that Pope John Paul called, not a privilege of a few, "but a right and duty of all.” (The Vocation and Mission of the Lay Faithful, 63) While each individual has the responsibility for their own formation, "priests and candidates for Orders [are] to be prepared carefully so that they are ready to foster the vocation and mission of the lay faithful." (The Vocation and Mission of the Lay Faithful, 61) This is a vital aspect of the priestly office – an exercise of the kingly power of Christ and pastoral governance – that is often ignored. In this presentation, Fr. Michael Fones, OP, of the Western Province will examine the complementary roles of the clergy and laity in the Church’s mission, the spiritual gifts (charisms) that empower those roles, and the possibility of re-imagining the parish as a house of formation for the laity.

Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew.
