“Bishop Bernard Shlesinger Reflections”

HOW RELEVANT IS CATHOLIC SOCIAL TEACHING TODAY?

WHERE DOES CARE OF CREATION FIT INTO THE LIFE OF A CATHOLIC?

WHY SHOULD INDIFFERENCE TO THE EVIL OF RACIST BEHAVIOR BE ADDRESSED?

Catholic Social Teaching is a central and essential element of our faith. The themes of Catholic Social teaching are built on the premise that everyone is a child of God and deserves respect and dignity. All Catholics are asked to follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ; and, in so doing, reflect the themes of Catholic Social teachings on how to interact with each other, our society, and the world.

Bishop Bernard Shlesinger (“Bishop Ned”) will share his thoughts on the topics of Catholic Social Teaching and how germane they are in today’s world. Bishop Ned will tell the audience about his personal visit with Pope Francis in 2019 and how the interaction impacted him. He will also share his thoughts on the recent events surrounding the interaction of law enforcement and citizens. We will entertain Q/A after Bishop Ned’s remarks.

SPECIAL COVID INSTRUCTIONS: The meeting will be held in the Sanctuary of the Transfiguration Church and attendees will be required to register online and to conform to social distancing and mask wearing rules consistent with Mass attendance on weekend. Compliance to the COVID guidelines of the archdiocese and civil authorities will be mandatory.
