Christ Speaks in the City, Spring 2007

Christ Speaks in the City, Spring 2007

Since its fall program was so successful, the vocations office of the Archdiocese of Boston is planning a spring series of Christ Speaks in the City.

The Christ Speaks in the City Lecture Series is an event hosted by the Vocation Office of the Archdiocese of Boston in the heart of Downtown Boston’s Financial Center. Our main goal is to invite people to ask the major questions for which we know Christ and His Church are the answer. The Lectures feature speakers who are recognized for their extraordinary witness to the faith. Lectures are free to the public and a light lunch will be provided.

It’s a lunch time event at the Old State House and it’s not just for men discerning a vocation to the priesthood, but for every person seeking to understand God’s plan for his life.

The first even is next week, March 1, with a lecture by Fr. Richard Erickson, the vicar general of the Archdiocese of Boston who also happens to be a Lt. Colonel in the US Air Force, having served as a chaplain in Iraq. His talk is entitled: “Following Christ Wherever He Leads: Reflections on Ministry on the Frontlines of Iraq and Boston.”

Other speakers will be Jo Tango, one of the founders of the Boston Catholic Men’s Conference and a successful venture capital investor, who will speak about “Making Time for God” on March 22. Kerri Marmol—married mother of two and member of the Community of San’t Egidio who helped found a “School of Peace” for children in Jamaica Plain and a “School of the Gospel” for adults in Allston—will speak April 26 on “‘My Yoke is Easy’: The Joy of Living The Gospel in Prayer and Friendship with the Poor.”

Finally, on May 24, Cardinal Sean O’Malley will talk about “The Power of the Eucharist.”
