On November 12, Professor Helen Alvaré delivered the parish’s annual St. Albert’s Day Lecture. Before an eager and enthusiastic audience, she addressed the topic, “The Catholic Voice in the Public Square: Sectarian or Civic?” Over the course of her remarks, Professor Alvaré shared the wisdom she has gained as a Catholic lawyer and lobbyist regarding how believers ought to engage public debate on difficult moral questions. She focused specifically on the debates surrounding abortion, health care, and marriage, and the recommendations she gave for approaching each were both insightful and encouraging.
Below you’ll find both audio and video of Professor Alvaré’s lecture, as well as audio of the Q & A session that followed her presentation.
Thank you for your patience. We’re still working to get CSVFBlog back online.
The problem we’re experiencing is with the WordPress back office. A recent update caused us to lose many of the blog’s normal publishing features, and we’re trying to retrieve as many of them as we can. This hasn’t been easy. If any major changes to the blog have to take place, we’ll let you know. Until then, please say a prayer for the quick and successful resolution of these problems.
