First of all, a great big thank-you to all who helped the Archdiocesan Catechetical Office celebrate the completion of our 30th anniversary year: Cardinal Dolan, our clergy, consecrated men and women, directors/coordinators of religious education, catechists, the rector and staff of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and so many more.
Now it’s time to move on to Saturday, June 21, and the fifth annual New York Catholic Bible Summit, which will take place at Cathedral High School in the Catholic Center in Manhattan. It’s a great way to discover new insights on Scripture from some of the most knowledgeable Bible experts in the county. Whether you are a catechist, a catechetical leader, a lector, a member of your parish RCIA team or just interested in deepening your understanding, you will profit from this day. The theme this year, with a nod to Pope Francis, is “Discover the Joy of the Gospel.” Keynoters are the Rev. Anthony Ciorra, Ph.D., of Sacred Heart University in Bridgeport, Conn. (English), and Dr. Nuria Calduch-Benages from the Gregorian University in Rome (Spanish). Cardinal Dolan will join us in the afternoon. This event is co-sponsored by the Archdiocesan Catechetical Office and the American Bible Society.
You’ll find all the information on speakers and registration here. Hope to see you on the 21st
