FutureChurch celebrates 10th Anniversary

The tenth anniversary celebration of the founding of FutureChurch kicks off with the annual dinner on Thursday, October 12 in Cleveland. Featured speaker will be Fr. Richard McBrien, Professor of Theology at the University of Notre Dame and past president of the Catholic Theological Society of America. His keynote address is entitled The Eucharist: Past Present and Future. McBrien was the scheduled speaker at the very first FutureChurch annual dinner and we are pleased to welcome him again to help us celebrate our tenth anniversary. For ticket information call the FutureChurch office at 216-228-0869.

FutureChurch will also hold a daylong conference on Friday, November 3, preceding Call to Action's annual conference in Milwaukee that weekend. Entitled Eucharist: A Threatened Species?, this session features as morning keynoter the well-known sacramental theologian Bernard J. Cooke, Professor of Theology at the University of San Diego. Cooke was the very first FutureChurch speaker on the topic of the threatened Eucharist about which he wrote an article in 1990 that was published in the National Catholic Reporter.

Following his presentation, FutureChurch Executive Director Chris Schenk and Leadership Council Co-coordinator Fr. Louis Trivison will conduct an interactive session to discuss strategies for addressing the priest shortage in participants' dioceses.

Medical Mission Sister Miriam Therese Winter, Professor of Liturgy, Worship, Spirituality and Feminist Studies at Hartford Seminary in Connecticut, is afternoon keynoter. Sr. Miriam Therese will speak on Another Eucharistic Tradition - Next Steps, briefly revisiting her inspirational presentation from last year's Call to Action conference on "small E eucharist."
