'Tis The Season For Religious Conferences

 It's the season for religious conferences ...

If you want to follow what the US Bishops are doing at their Annual Conference in Seattle which started yesterday there is live video coverage here and links to Facebook and Twitter too.

Meanwhile in Ireland in this video Fr Kevin Doran speaks about the recent meeting of the Pontifical Committee for International Eucharistic Congresses which took place in All Hallows College Dublin from 1 – 3 June 2011.

Fr Kevin also talks about the preparations for the 2012 Irish Eucharistic Congress and what International and Irish pilgrims can be doing at this point to prepare for the Congress which is just one year away.

Here is a link to the text of Archbishop Diarmuid Martin’s address to the International Delegates where he speaks of his serious concerns and hopes on the future of the Irish Church.

The American Catholic Council (ACC) met for the first time this last weekend in Detroit and I would like to post further on this but haven't had the time yet.....
