LA ROCHE COLLEGE TO HOST CATHOLIC COMMON GROUND CONVERSATION ON MARCH 19
CATHOLICS INVITED TO TAKE PART IN PRAYERFUL DIALOGUE
PITTSBURGH, Feb. 27, 2013 – La Roche College will host its second Catholic Common Ground discussion on Tuesday, March 19 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The event will take place in the Ryan Room, located in the Zappala College Center.
The Catholic Common Ground Initiative, inspirited by the call to be one in Christ, invites Catholics to engage in a prayerful dialogue on critical issues in the Church. This year’s forum will discuss “The Role of Laity in the Church,” lead by La Roche College History Professor Edward Brett, Ph.D. The session will begin with a pot-luck covered dish supper. Participants can make a free-will offering to support the Sister Candace Introcaso Student Emergency Fund.
Cardinal Joseph Bernardin, the late archbishop of Chicago, started the Catholic Common Ground Initiative in October of 1996. La Roche College holds Common Ground conversations in honor of Father Eugene Lauer, the College’s former academic vice president, campus minister and chair of the humanities division. Future topics under consideration include: Sexual Orientation, Faith and the Academy and La Roche College and Catholic Identity.
Preregistration is strongly encouraged. To register for the event, contact Gina Miller at email@example.com or 412-536-1085.
