Exploring Catholic Culture: Vatican II - An Unexpected Revolution

This year's Exploring Catholic Culture program zeroed in on the 50th Anniversary of the beginning of Vatican II.  Input concerning the history of the Council, the new role the laity was to play in the life of the Church, and the pastoral implications for Church leadership at that juncture in our history were some of the themes addressed by presenters, Maureen Sullivan OP, Paul Lakeland, and Bishop Peter Rosazza. The engaging conversation engendered between presenters and attendees at the conference was stimulating and encouraging.
