Mark your calendars!
On Saturday, October 4, the Family Life – Respect Life Office of the Archdiocese of New York and the Church of St. Vincent Ferrer will host an afternoon conference to commemorate the fortieth anniversary of the encyclical Humanae Vitae. Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Janet Smith, whose books and recordings on the subject of contraception are well known. She will deliver two lectures: “Humanae Vitae: Controversy and Prophecy” and “The Connection Between Contraception and Same-Sex Unions.”
The conference will also include a panel discussion with three professional couples who will share their experience of living the Church’s teaching.
To conclude the conference, the Most Reverend Gerald Walsh, an auxiliary bishop of New York, will celebrate Mass and preach.
The conference is free and open to the public.
