Session Two

The Moral Life: Getting it straight, doing it right!

Presenter: Fr. James Ermer
Matthew’s Gospel tells a story of a rich young man who seeks eternal life. This story outlines the many facets of the moral life. Fr. Ermer will explore this story and its implications for living fully in Christ – The Way, The Truth and The Life.

Gospel of St. John

Presenters: Fr. Scott Sautner
The fourth Gospel in the New Testament, so different from the first three, brings the signs and glory of Christ to the eyes of those who believe in the Word made Flesh. Join with Father Sautner in a quest to see the face of God through the words of St. John’s Good News.

Sinners & Saints: The Church

Presenters: Bishop John Folda, Mr. Tim Olsen, Fr. Kurtis Gunwall
The Church is filled with Sinners and Saints and we all live on that spectrum. In this workshop, we will hear how (and why) the Church addresses the scandals caused by sinners – whether laity or clergy. We will talk about the effects of scandal and God’s call to holiness to each of us as members of the Church. Finally, we will talk about Redemptive Suffering and the call for the clergy and laity to embrace these crosses, especially in response to the news of this last year.
