Faithful Citizenship LogoThe first week of October will be busy for politically-aware Catholics in St. Louis. Two days following Credo’s showing of Breaking the Spiral of Silence, and a month before the 2012 Presidential Election, Fontbonne is hosting an evening forum that features an intellectually stimulating conversation among four prominent scholars on the role of religion and public life, and the challenge of pursuing the common good in a pluralistic society.  Free and open to the public.

The Corondelet Lecture at Fontbonne University is …devoted to exploring how Catholic thought may engage a pluralistic world. It is an activity of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet Endowed Chair in Catholic Thought at Fontbonne University and is co-sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, St. Louis Province.

Dr. Randy Rosenberg is the current occupant of the Chair at Fontbonne, and led a terrific discussion of the Catholic themes in Shakespeare’s A Winter’s Tale this past Spring. This particular forum will take a sort of “academic” approach, where a question will be addressed from various perspectives by the panel. Judging from the panel, it promises to be very interesting and solidly orthodox. Credo members and friends will not want to miss it.
