My task for today is to work on finalizing the readings, texts, and class outlines for the 3 credit graduate course in The Theology of the Laity that Fr. Michael Sweeney and I will be teaching at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit, May 26 - Jun5, 2009. It will be open to STL, MA and MAPS students.
I'm coming across some really interesting stuff which I will probably blog on today as well.
This weekend, Fr. Mike and I will be offering an experimental weekend version of Making Disciples for the Archdiocese of Kansas City, Kansas. The participants include pastors and leaders from 4 different parishes, staff from the Office of Evangelization and Catechesis and a couple of diocesan staff from the Archdiocese of Omaha.
Alas, this one is not open to the public but our Colorado Rocky Mountain High version of Making Disciples is another story. (Wait for 30 seconds for the brochure to come up after clicking. For some reason, it is taking its time)
Picture this: July 26 - 30, 2009: You are 7,000 feet high in the Colorado Rockies in a Francisco Retreat center a half mile from the Pike National Forest where humidity and mosquitoes don't exist but deer herds (and baby fawns) roam freely. And you get to spend four life-changing days with other enthusiastic Catholic leaders from around the country (and elsewhere) learning a set of gentle, non-weird, real-life evangelistic skills that you can use in any kind of ministry situation or with family, friends, co-workers and neighbors.
And early risers get to witness dawn at the most spectacular city park in the US: the Garden of the Gods.
