Session Descriptions FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28

to prevent problem behaviors before they occur. This session will present the PBIS framework and give a specific focus on implementation in Catholic schools.

Session I – 9:15 – 10:15 AM I-01 DEVELOPING LAY ECCLESIAL MINISTRY His Eminence Francis Cardinal George, OMI Arena Cardinal George will offer theological and pastoral insights on the developing and growing reality of lay ecclesial ministry and the implications for the Church. He will reflect on the bishop’s relationship to the lay ecclesial minister and consider the future of this leadership and service, underscoring a fruitful collaboration between ordained and lay.

Also being presented in Session IV

III-04 WALKING TOGETHER AS FAITH-ALIVE CATHOLIC SCHOOLS Dr. Elinor Ford Arena

Catholic schools are the Church’s wise investment to ensure that among its future generations are members who have received an in-depth faith education rooted in living daily in the spirit of Jesus Christ. This education is provided by the passionate witness of the school’s committed, competent and ever-caring faculty and staff. This keynote will describe both the wonder of those who truly minister in Catholic schools, and provide ways that they and those served can grow in wisdom, age and grace.

Session II – 10:45 – 11:45 AM II-01 CALLED TO BE PROPHETS AND POETS Dr. Robert McCarty, D.Min. Arena

Balancing action and contemplation, doing and being, ministry and intimacy with the Lord – these are the challenges of the prophet and the poet that is each of us. This session provides an opportunity to examine our lives and our ministry through the lenses of prophet and poet, so that we can allow Jesus to move our hearts in order to move our actions.

III-05 DIALOGUE OR DEFENSE: APOLOGETICS VERSES ECUMENISM Dr. Greer G. Gordon A131

The term apologetics has resurfaced largely through writings, the majority of which are written by Evangelical Protestants who wish to correct Catholic errors. Sadly, many of those who use the term appear to be unfamiliar with the lengthy history of apologetics within Roman Catholic Tradition and the Church’s current posture of welcome and dialogue with other Christians. This session will address the historic tension between apologetics and ecumenism and offer insights into Evangelical Protestant understanding of apologetics and Roman Catholic understanding of intra-faith dialogue in relation to New Apologetics. This session is recommended for Evangelization personnel, and those who live, work, and/or minister with evangelical protestant communities.

Session III – 1:30 – 2:30 PM III-01 THE GOLDILOCKS YEARS: FINDING WHAT’S “JUST RIGHT” FOR YOUNG ADOLESCENTS Mary Lee Becker A135-136

Too old for this, too young for that – welcome to the world of young adolescents! How do we find what’s “just right” to reach and teach these energetic, inquisitive and often outspoken youth? Whether you live with, work with or simply wonder about 6th-9th graders, this session will help you understand why they are the way they are….and provide practical ideas for forming faith with them at church, at home and even in the car! Also being presented in Session IX

III-02

“DISCIPLESHIP-SHAPED” MINISTRY WITH TEENS AND YOUNG ADULTS Jim Beckman Ballroom A4

The whole aim of the Church is to evangelize and catechize, and for those who work with young people it is our central task. What is the difference between a follower of Christ and a disciple? And how do we make disciples of the young people that we work with? This session gets to the heart of discipleship ministry with young people, revealing the earmarks and tools for effective discipleship, and the key ingredients necessary to walk with young people into owned and lived faith. Also being presented in Session IV

III-03

AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION: POSITIVE BEHAVIORAL SUPPORTS FOR CATHOLIC SCHOOLS Dr. Michael J. Boyle, Ph.D. Ballroom A3 Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a powerful process to create a system of supports

Also being presented in Session VII

III-06

FIVE WAYS TO ENSURE THE LITURGY IS MORE FORMATIONAL Rev. Timothy Heines A118-119

Our celebration of Christian liturgy is an inherently formational act as it builds us up together as Christ’s body and helps each participant to grow more into the image and likeness of Christ. In this talk, Rev. Heines looks at five perspectives that liturgists and catechists might keep in mind to ensure that the naturally formational dimensions of our Christian worship can truly reap the greatest fruit in each celebration. Drawing upon the writings of contemporary liturgical theologians and pastoral practice, Rev. Heines hopes these five ways can ensure that each member of an assembly and the assembly of the whole can lay claim to the riches available in every celebration for growth in Christ.

III-07 SAINTLY COMPANIONS FOR OUR SPIRITUAL JOURNEY Lisa Hendey A122-123


Session Descriptions Join Lisa Hendey for a look at the saints – some popular and some less well known – who intercede for us along our path to heaven. Learn more about the lives of specific saints who serve as role models of a commitment to justice, courage and virtue.

III-08

“WHO IS MY NEIGHBOR?” BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVES ON ETHNIC INCLUSIVITY Angeline Hubert A124-127

Church teaching on reserving ordination to men, on fertility awareness and on homosexual behavior is difficult for some to accept. What’s behind these teachings, and how can we help God’s people understand, accept and live Catholic faith in its fullness and beauty? Pastors, religion teachers, DREs, youth ministers and principals will learn helpful, effective ways of explaining some hard teachings pastorally.

III-13

Also being presented in Session VIII

Also being presented in Session VII

III-14

One of the most pressing questions pastoral leaders have is about collaboration. How do men and women work together? Pastors, parish staff, and parishioners? How do we recognize the unique role and contribution of each? Please join us as we look at healthy models of collaboration and how they show up in parish ministry.

Also being presented in Session IX

III-15 REACH YOUR YOUNG PEOPLE (JUNIOR HIGH/ HIGH SCHOOL) - GUARANTEED Anna Scally A133-134

III-12 TEACHING ON TOUGH ISSUES: PRACTICAL TIPS FOR HELPING GOD’S PEOPLE EMBRACE HIS CHALLENGING TRUTHS Ken Ogorek A308

“FORGIVE ME FATHER FOR I HAVE SINNED.” WHY CONFESSION? Lucas Pollice, MTS Ballroom A1

This breakout session will give a scriptural defense of the Sacrament of Penance and also show why the confession of serious sin to a priest is not only necessary but also how the regular practice of confession is such a great gift and grace in our ongoing conversion and growth in holiness. An ideal session for DREs, catechists, parents, those involved in sacramental preparation, and for anyone who wants to be holy!

III-10 WITNESSES & MARTYRS: SOME FEMININE MODELS OF MINISTRY Dr. Daniel J. Luby, S.T.L., S.T.D. A114-116

Among Jesus’ closest disciples, three Marys provide us with inspiring – and somewhat surprising – models for ministry. Practical applications of the example of these three women of Scripture, and dialogue with other conference participants will enrich your own approach to ministry.

A301

The search for planets around other stars (exoplanets) has yielded over five hundred alien worlds beyond imagination. With each new world, astronomers are forced to rethink how planets form, the chances for earth-like planets, and the lessons other worlds teach us. The growing number of exoplanets also raises theological questions centered on how to understand Christ in light of the immensity of the universe and the possibility of life beyond Earth. We will examine the ways in which astronomers search for worlds beyond Earth, the prospects for finding earth-like planets, and the moral and theological questions that arise from research.

In answer to the question “Who is my neighbor?” Jesus told the parable of the Good Samaritan. The lawyer’s question and Jesus’ response throw light on the topic of this session. Using the parable and other scriptural texts, we will explore what the Bible has to say about openness and inclusivity within the Christian community. This exploration will enrich your faith experience, affirm your loving response to the neighbor you meet in your daily life and work, and deepen your understanding of the scriptural basis of openness to the other.

“DISCIPLESHIP-SHAPED” MINISTRY WITH TEENS AND YOUNG ADULTS Jim Beckman A124-127

The whole aim of the Church is to evangelize and catechize, and for those who work with young people it is our central task. What is the difference between a follower of Christ and a disciple? And how do we make disciples of the young people that we work with? This session gets to the heart of discipleship ministry with young people, revealing the earmarks and tools for effective discipleship, and the key ingredients necessary to walk with young people into owned and lived faith. Also being presented in Session III

IV-02 LEADING WITH SOUL Dr. Lee G. Bolman, Ph.D.

Ballroom A4

To prevail in the face of violence, homelessness, malaise, and many other spiritual challenges of modern life, we need a vision of leadership rooted in the enduring sense of human wisdom, spirit, and heart. We need a new generation of seekers. We need a revolution in how we think about and develop leaders. Most management and leadership development programs ignore or demean spirit. They desperately need an infusion of spiritual forms such as poetry, literature, music, art, theater, history, philosophy, and dance. If we do this, we can help individuals reclaim their hearts, souls, and spirits and they will be prepared to share their own gifts from the heart.

IV-03

AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION: POSITIVE BEHAVIORAL SUPPORTS FOR CATHOLIC SCHOOLS Dr. Michael J. Boyle, Ph.D. A302-303 Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a powerful process to create a system of supports to prevent problem behaviors before they occur. This session will present the PBIS framework and give a specific focus on implementation in Catholic schools. Also being presented in Session III

IV-04 CULTURAL COMPETENCE IN BEREAVEMENT MINISTRY AND GRIEF SUPPORT Linda M. Cherek, RN, MSW, LICSW, FT A301

Our American culture may be unintentionally ethnocentric in understanding, describing and dealing with the reality of death and bereavement due in part to an absence of a conscious awareness of the realities of people from other cultures. Catholic rituals around death and dying are universal, however, bereavement support within the church/parish setting following death has typically not been supported across all cultural groups. This program will explore the cultural bereavement rituals of ethnic groups within our church, the role evangelization plays in bereavement, and how to develop faith-based grief support. Come prepared to

“YOU WANT IT WHEN?” Sr. Carol Cimino, SSJ, Ed.D.

A133-134

This presentation covers several issues that confront the school secretary, including the prioritization of work, dealing with salespersons, some legal issues, and keeping it all together.

IV-06 WORKING TOGETHER TO HELP CHILDREN SHINE AND GROW: THE PASTOR/PRINCIPAL RELATIONSHIP Rev. Abelardo Cobos Gómez & Danny Brogee A115

Rev. Abelardo Cobos is Pastor of Resurrection Catholic community, church and school and has worked together with principal Danny Brogee for four years. When they began their journey in Catholic education, Resurrection had an enrollment of about 69 students and was in danger of being closed down; however in one year, they were able to increase enrollment by 75%. According to the University of Notre Dame, one in every five Catholic schools has closed since 2000. In this session, Rev. Abelardo and Danny Brogee will share their experiences of how they took a struggling inner city Catholic school in Houston, Texas, and saved it from becoming one of these statistics.

IV-07 THEY SAID WHAT? HOW NOT TO TEACH THE CATHOLIC FAITH Marlon De La Torre, M.A., M.Ed. A308

Marlon De La Torre will reveal common errors most catechists and religion teachers make when teaching the faith and what key catechetical methods will help to effectively avoid these errors when handing on the faith to others.

IV-08 CONTINUING THE FAITH-ALIVE WALK Dr. Elinor Ford Ballroom A3

This session will be a follow-up of the keynote describing in more detail how the great Catholic school personnel can motivate and energize both themselves and the students to be faith-alive in a culture that at best ignores and at worst negates the values that their ministry promotes.

IV-09 PRIEST FACULTIES AND PRENUPTIAL PAPERWORK PROCESSING IN THE DALLAS DIOCESE Margaret Gillett A306-307

The session will cover, in general, the newly issued Faculties for the Priests of the Diocese of Dallas and, in particular, those faculties relating to marriage. The presentation will concentrate on the paperwork aspect of preparing a couple in the Dallas diocese for marriage, whether the wedding will occur in the Dallas diocese or outside the Dallas diocese. Time will be provided for questions during and/or after the session. Also being presented in Session VIII


Session Descriptions IV-10 PRESENTS OR PRESENCE: GOD’S PROMISES AND OUR EXPECTATIONS Gene Giuliano, M.A. A310

In Sacred Scripture the primary question about God is not, “Does God exist?” The primary question is, “Is God with us or not?” The biblical witness is that our God is a God of promise. But what is it that God promises? And do our expectations match what is promised? It is all about “presents” or “presence” as this session reflects on the nature of the gift God offers and on the depth of our desire to want it and to accept it. Also being presented in Session VI

BECOMING HUMAN: THE FINAL FRONTIER James McGill A118-119

The question of what it means to be human confronts all of us throughout our lives. Some contend that humanity can be reduced to biological or chemical or political or economic categories while others see human nature as completely transcending history, culture, gender and existing in a realm of pure objectivity. In this talk we will strive to find a balance between the relativists and the absolutists. Physical, cultural and historical categories will be in dialogue with philosophical and theological ones to allow us to

V-02 TRYING TECHNOLOGY TO DISCOVER THEOLOGY: A TOOL OR A TRAP? Rev. Jason Cargo A124-127

In the last couple of years, an explosion of new media has led to a revolution in communication. Blogging, texting, apps., google, and messaging have become part of our everyday lexicon. How does the Church view this tecne revolution and what are the implications for a society starved for spiritual meaning?

“BE PERFECT AS YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER IS PERFECT”: IS JESUS SERIOUS? Gene Giuliano, M.A. A310

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus calls his hearers to “Be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Can He be serious? Does the New Testament portrait of Christian discipleship present an ideal that is impossible to attain? This session takes a hard look at the reasonableness of the New Testament call to a life of “perfection.” Also being presented in Session VII

V-06 THE CROSS AS TRANSFORMATION Dr. Greer G. Gordon

A131

Across the cultural, economic and educational spectrum, people appear to be suffering from hopelessness. Overwhelmed, this hopelessness many have fallen into depression or depraved behaviors. As Christians, we claim to be heirs to a promise that overcomes death. We profess that, through the death and resurrection of Christ, our loss has been transformed and redeemed. This session addresses the continuing need to unfold the meaning of the cross for a suffering world and offers insights into the necessity of teaching the enigma of the cross as a sign of hope. For in the midst of the darkness and despair, there is the transforming light of the resurrected crucified Christ. This session is recommended for those engaged in the ministries of evangelization, catechesis, pastoral care, youth, young adult, and small faith communities.

A135-136

This presentation addresses the Church teachings on the five non-negotiables: abortion, euthanasia, stem cell research, cloning, and same-sex marriage. Society and the media can make us believe what is intrinsically wrong is really right. We are blessed that our Church not only takes a stand for what is right, but also provides us with the knowledge to do what is right through the Catechism and encyclicals, guiding us through difficult situations in life. Understanding the teachings gives us confidence in our own decisions and the ability to support others through similar difficult decisions. Also being presented in Session VIII

V-09 GRAY HAIR IS THE CROWN OF GLORY: AGING AND THE ELDERLY IN THE BIBLE Angeline Hubert A304

As those 65 and older become the fastest growing segment of the U. S. population, issues of aging and the elderly are coming to the fore. Historically, wisdom has been associated with elders. How can today’s elders use their wisdom to build the community? How do we as a Catholic, Christian community respond to the elders in our midst? What insights on aging and the elderly can we find in scripture? This session will explore how the wisdom found in the Bible can offer guidance for our response to the “golden years.

V-13 WHAT DOES THE CATHOLIC CHURCH TEACH ABOUT EVOLUTION? Dr. John Norris A122-123

This presentation will look at contemporary Catholic considerations of evolutionary theory. A primary source will be the Vatican’s International Theological Commission’s document, “Communion and Stewardship: Human Persons Created in the Image of God.” We will look at the history of evolutionary theory and the theological response and critique of Darwinism, as well as the current state of biology concerning the origins of life, particularly of humanity. We will examine challenges posed to traditional Catholic doctrines of creation and humanity while examining the nature of science and theology and their legitimate boundaries. We will attempt to see how Catholics can both preserve the doctrine of the Church while acknowledging the truth of scientific theory.

VI-02 PRESENTS OR PRESENCE: GOD’S PROMISES AND OUR EXPECTATIONS Gene Giuliano, M.A. A310

In Sacred Scripture the primary question about God is not, “Does God exist?” The primary question is, “Is God with us or not?” The biblical witness is that our God is a God of promise. But what is it that God promises? And do our expectations match what is promised? It is all about “presents” or “presence” as this session reflects on the nature of the gift God offers and on the depth of our desire to want it and to accept it. Also being presented in Session IV

This presentation will focus on the 2003 pastoral letter from the Catholic Bishops of Mexico and the United States, “Strangers No Longer: Together on the Journey of Hope.” The teaching of the Church will be examined as a foundation for advocacy of migrant workers and families. The bishops seek “A more orderly system that accommodates the reality of migration and promotes just application of civil law…We invite Catholics and persons of good will in both nations to exercise their faith and to use their resources and gifts to truly welcome the stranger among us (cf. Mt 25:35).” The specific responsibilities of the call will be explored including legislating a just system of migration flow, maintaining birthright citizenship, opposing the criminalization of undocumented workers, giving due process rights to all the undocumented, and treating all migrants with dignity and respect.

The search for planets around other stars (exoplanets) have yielded over five hundred alien worlds beyond imagination. With each new world, astronomers are forced to rethink how planets form, the chances for earth-like planets, and the lessons other worlds teach us. The growing number of exoplanets also raises theological questions centered on how to understand Christ in light of the immensity of the universe and the possibility of life beyond Earth. We will examine the ways in which astronomers search for worlds beyond Earth, the prospects for finding earth-like planets, and the moral and theological questions that arise from research.

VII-18 HOW DOES THE BIG BANG AND EVOLUTION FIT IN WITH DIVINE CREATION? Rev. William Stoeger, S.J. A122-123

Rev. Stoeger’s talk will show how our knowledge of the universe and its history enriches our understanding of divine creation, and how a proper Catholic understanding complements what we know from astronomy, physics, and biology. He will sketch the history of our amazing universe from the Big Bang to the present, and briefly discuss cosmic and biological evolution. In doing so he will stress that these processes originate in and are enabled by God’s ongoing creative act. Rev. Stoeger will outline the Catholic understanding of divine creation and how it is not only fully compatible with all that we know from the sciences, but helps us appreciate their strengths and limitations.

At last! We finally have the long awaited English version of the Third Typical Edition of the Roman Missal. The language of prayer powerfully expresses our faith, even as it forms us in that faith. After 35 years with the current “Sacramentary,” what significance and what explanations do we want to have as we prepare for the First Sunday of Advent? Whether you have been looking forward to this, been dreading it, or just tuning in...now is a great time to take a fresh look at our language of prayer.

Session VIII – 2:00 – 3:00 PM VIII-01 THE POPE’S PR PROBLEM John Allen, Jr.

Arena

There’s a great story to tell about Pope Benedict XVI, beginning with his deep commitment to “Affirmative Orthodoxy” – presenting classic Christian teaching in the most positive key possible. Persistent communications woes at the Vatican, however, sometimes make that story hard to get across to a general audience. This session examines several case studies drawn from recent experience, extracting larger lessons for the enterprise of Church communications at all levels.

VIII-04 “WHO IS MY NEIGHBOR?” BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVES ON ETHNIC INCLUSIVITY Angeline Hubert A115

In answer to the question “Who is my neighbor?” Jesus told the parable of the Good Samaritan. The lawyer’s question and Jesus’ response throw light on the topic of this session. Using the parable and other scriptural texts, we will explore what the Bible has to say about openness and inclusivity within the Christian community. This exploration will enrich your faith experience, affirm your loving response to the neighbor you meet in your daily life and work, and deepen your understanding of the scriptural basis of openness to the other. Also being presented in Session III

VIII-05 A SCIENTIST’S PRIMER ON THE UNIVERSE Dr. Jonathan Lunine, Ph.D. A308

Our modern picture of the cosmos is vastly different from that in the ages when Paul, Augustine, and Aquinas wrote. How does our modern understanding of the universe influence theology? Must we as Catholics pretend that we live in a heliocentric universe? Does our new understanding of the universe diminish the purpose of humanity? Or is it irrelevant to all of these considerations? Dr. Lunine will try to address these issues from his own point of view, as a Catholic and planetary scientist, and will invite the audience to do the same.

Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader? Wheel of Fortune? Taboo? Jeopardy? Password? Sounds like a game show! You’re right! Faith formation and managing the environment in catechetical sessions has always been a challenge.

Our 2,000 year-old Church is in critical need today of helping our pastors, school Administrators and archbishops/bishops to be good stewards of the resources entrusted to their care.

Communities of Prayer (Tom Grossman)

Fri – 4:00PM (BLS) | Sat – 9:30AM (HAPS) | Sat – 3:00PM (BLS)

Communities of Prayer (COP) strengthens community and encourages discipleship by establishing schools of prayer and equipping the Body of Christ so that, unified, we can contribute to the New Evangelization. Every Church is a place where Christ should reign supreme in the hearts of the faithful, where each one, being formed in discipleship and readied for the work of evangelization, is better able to live the one faith preached in the Gospel. To this end, four pillars of COP have been developed to serve the Body of Christ: community, discipleship, evangelization, and unity. Each of these was foundational to the early church and is still vital today.

Curtis Stephan

Fri – 8:30AM (Arena) | Fri – 5:45PM (Arena) | Sat – 9:30AM (Arena) | Sat – 1:30PM (HAPS)

When Curtis Stephan finished his master’s degree from UNT in jazz studies, he never realized where God’s plan would take him. Originally invited to play guitar, sing, and lead music at a youth mass at the rapidly growing parish of St. Ann in Coppell, TX, Curtis quickly learned that the path in music ministry is long and filled with adventure. As composer, that road led him to spiritandsong.com, a division of Oregon Catholic Press, who has published many of his contemporary works including a popular new mass setting for the Revised Roman Missal, the “Mass of Renewal.” As artist and worship leader, Curtis has served the church internationally in venues large and small, including National Catholic Youth Conferences, World Youth Days in Germany, Australia and Spain; he was a featured performer at the special event for 40,000 youth in Turin, Italy with Pope Benedict XVI. As a disciple and witness, you see his deep roots in the church and genuine love for helping others grow closer to Christ. The adventure is mostly lived at his home parish of St. Ann where he serves as music director, but when he’s not chasing his two young sons around and as his wife allows, Curtis often travels to places near and far offering dynamic workshops in music and spirituality.

Cuando niño, Tony veía a su papá tocar la guitarra y sintió el gran deseo de poderla tocar también, hasta que un día su papá puso la guitarra en el suelo. “Tony,” dijo, “anda a lavarte los pies.” Tony lavó sus pies y se sentó a tocar la guitarra por primera vez. Nunca dejó que su condición física le desanimara, y con mucho esfuerzo y práctica, aprendió a tocarla magistralmente con los dedos de sus pies. Practicaba hasta 6 horas diarias “(…) hasta que la bulla comenzó a oírse como música (…)” como dice el mismo Tony. Aunque no tiene brazos, en su plática sobresale su positivismo, un férreo amor por Dios, una fe inquebrantable y los deseos de hacer hasta el final algo que para muchos pareciera imposible, tocar la guitarra con los pies. Ahora, con 42 años, casado y con dos hijos, reside en Branson, Missouri. Ha dado conciertos en cuarenta países y vendido más de 60.000 ejemplares de su autobiografía “A gift of hope” que en español se ha traducido como “Un Regalo de Esperanza.” Al compartir su historia, Tony nos presenta un mensaje positivo que nos hace entender que con todas nuestras facultades físicas y mentales, tenemos la capacidad, las habilidades y los talentos necesarios para dejar a un lado las excusas y emprender el apasionante camino hacia el éxito personal. La experiencia de conocer a Tony, verlo tocar su guitarra y escuchar su historia narrada por él mismo es algo indescriptible que cambiará su vida.

Sesión II – 10:45 – 11:45 AM II-51 SÓLO DIOS BASTA Rev. Abelardo Cobos Gómez

Ballroom A2

Nada te turbe, nada te espante, todo se pasa, Dios no se muda. La paciencia todo lo alcanza, quien a Dios tiene nada le falta. “SÓLO DIOS BASTA”. Son las palabras con las que terminan una de las poesias de Santa Teresa de Ávila. “Sólo Dios Basta” son las palabras que tenemos que repetirnos constantemente cuando tenemos que tomar decisiones, cuando nos sentimos tristes o abatidos por la vida, cuando convertimos todo en un problema, “Sólo Dios Basta” son las palabras que nos tienen que acompañar en nuestra jornada diaria. En esta Conferencia en una forma dinámica y animada analizaremos todas estas palabras que poniéndolas en concordancia con el Evangelio llegaremos a la conclusión de que Dios es el único que le da sentido a nuestro ministerio, a nuestro trabajo, a nuestra comunidad, a nuestra familia, a nuestra vida.

II-54 MUJERES DEL NUEVO TESTAMENTO Pía Septién

A115

Conversaremos sobre lo que vieron en él que las llevó a seguirlo y a tener una relación de amistad con él como Martha y Maria. Y también conversaremos sobre lo que Jesús vio en ellas: almas que necesitaban del amor de Dios, tal como se lo hizo saber a la mujer Samaritana a quien le dijo: “Si conocieras el don de Dios”. Esta charla busca precisamente conocer el don de Dios, traído por Cristo a esas mujeres del Nuevo Testamento, y en ellas a todos nosotros, hombres y mujeres del siglo XXI. También se presentará en la Sesión IX

Descripciones de las sesiones y la salud reproductiva. Falta educar ampliamente a los formadores y profesores, y a todos los católicos para responder a este nuevo desafío que se juega en las políticas familiares. Se constata que los profesores, estudiantes y los miembros del clero en su conjunto, adoptan y utilizan a menudo el lenguaje inherente a la ideología de género sin saberlo. Es el aspecto más pernicioso de esta teoría: difundir los términos en el lenguaje cotidiano como mejor forma de hacer aceptar las ideas. También se presentará en la Sesión VI

V-52 EL SACRAMENTO DE LA RECONCILIACIÓN Alejandro Ordieres A306-307

El hombre es un extranjero cuya patria definitiva es el cielo. La guía está trazada pero el camino no siempre es suave y fácil de andar. El sacramento de la reconciliación no sólo nos lleva a encontrar la senda perdida por el pecado sino que nos fortalece y anima en nuestra trayectoria. Como sacramento, no sólo proporciona el perdón solicitado al Creador sino que llena el alma de las gracias necesarias para perseverar en nuestros objetivos.

Descripciones de las sesiones Alejandro Ordieres

A304

El hombre es un extranjero cuya patria definitiva es el cielo. La guía está trazada pero el camino no siempre es suave y fácil de andar. El sacramento de la reconciliación no sólo nos lleva a encontrar la senda perdida por el pecado sino que nos fortalece y anima en nuestra trayectoria.

Y también conversaremos sobre lo que Jesús vio en ellas: almas que necesitaban del amor de Dios, tal como se lo hizo saber a la mujer Samaritana a quien le dijo: “Si conocieras el don de Dios”.

Liturgical Art Visit the Ballroom A Lobby, where we’ve assembled images from fine quality liturgical art being created across the country. These artists were chosen and invited to participate in the exhibition by a committee of liturgical artists. Whether the medium is stained glass, bronze, mosaic or other traditional media, these works were created with a specific site and purpose in mind. Successful liturgical art requires collaboration between the artist, the commissioning parish and the architect. The artists whose work is reflected here have the talents to transform scripture into tangible, inspiring forms.

On behalf of the entire conference committee, we extend our gratitude to the many artists whose works were selected to enrich our conference experience.

History of the 2011 UDMC Cross The hand-carved crucifix used at the University of Dallas Ministry Conference is the work of the late long-time UD Professor of Art, Heri Bert Bartscht. It was created in the late 50’s, when Heri emigrated from Germany after the War. Heri was a young German Catholic artist drafted into the military under Hitler’s regime and served at Stalingrad. He survived that horrendous battle and slaughter because he suffered from frostbite on his feet and was evacuated to Germany. Many of the artists of the modern period in Europe after WWII made crucifixes that recall the holocaust and horror of the war experience, offering versions of a suffering Christ on the Cross. Heri’s work is not different in that respect. However it contains a further dimension--the horror of the tragic war as witnessed by Christ on the Cross. On Christ’s face Heri expressed an insight that is often forgotten in the crucifixes made by artists over the centuries, the horror of man’s inhumanity to man. In doing so the crucifix explores the nature of Christ as omniscient, seeing all, knowing all, grieving over the evil of the Calvary that is and the horrors of the future. We are asked in our faith to utilize the offerings of individual artists and their theological insights to further the life of the faithful. The University of Dallas is proud to loan this piece, property of the Church of the Incarnation, to the Conference.

The Figure of St. Francis During the Conference, the artist, Lyle Novinski, Professor Emeritus of the University of Dallas will be carving a figure of St. Francis for the Notre Dame Court, a new independent living facility adjacent to the diocesan retirement home, St. Joseph Residence. Construction of the new Notre Dame Court and the expansion of St. Joseph Residence recognize a burgeoning need for elder care in our aging population. On the proposed site for Notre Dame Court grew a magnificent multi-trunk Bois D’Arc Tree, a favorite of St. Joseph Residence Administrator, Sr. Adelaide Bocanegra, BETHL. Sister has served as Administrator since 1965, and in that time, watched the tree grow from a sapling. It was impossible to build around the great tree. But in the great Catholic tradition of death and renewal, the tree has new life. Developer Joe Dingman called on Lyle Novinski to help honor Sister’s service by carving a St. Francis statue for the new Notre Dame Court while Board Chairman Dan Flaherty found use for its timber in a cross over the expansion of St. Joseph Residence. Unlike typical smooth and polished statues of saints, St. Francis is depicted emerging from the Bois D’Arc log. Novinski’s rough transition between figure and tree is indicative of the inseparable connection of man and nature. The carving, while expressive, retains robust evidence of the hand of man in its chisel marks.

Catholic Charities Banner Display Jesus invites each one of us, “Come, follow me” (Mt 4:19). As His Church, we walk together in faith and support each other through community prayer and service. Catholic Charities of Dallas invites the Dallas Catholic community to walk with us in following Jesus by “providing help and creating hope, regardless of faith.” As you walk through the convention center throughout this UD Ministry Conference, you may notice nine extraordinary 6 foot banners. These banners were the creative fruit of a collaborative project between the Senior DECATS students and Catholic Charities of Dallas. An introductory banner, 7 artistic reflections on each of the seven Catholic Social Teachings, and a ‘Call to Action’ banner demonstrate the beauty of integrating faith education and service. These are but one example of how Catholic Charities of Dallas is prioritizing our faith call to walk together in faith integrating our social teaching and service opportunities for students and adults alike. The University of Dallas is not new company on this journey; we continue to celebrate a shared ministerial vision of education and service. We welcome students at the undergraduate and graduate levels to join us through Service Learning opportunities and we look forward to sharing our mission with undergraduates at their Charity week and a possible future internship opportunity. We follow Jesus, walking together in faith, through our Elderly and Family Assistance Services, Children and Adoption Services and Community Outreach, Immigration and Legal Services and Refugee Empowerment Services. We invite you: students, volunteers, ministers and parishioners to walk with us on this journey of faith in “providing help, creating hope…regardless of faith” because of our faith.

“Today’s classroom is a competitive place. Average students struggle to keep up, while motivated learners are often bored. Many are looking for extra help in order to gain an advantage. iCue Network has a perfect solution: iCue Academic Coaching™. “iCue Network provides an opportunity for teachers to earn supplemental income while offering their services online to families seeking to get ahead in a competitive academic environment. “Parents hire coaches to train their children in sports, music and other competitive skills; why not hire a coach to help a child navigate the competitive environment of today’s classroom? Skilled academic coaching to elementary students provides the advantage of higher scores on standardized testing, potentially qualifying those students for invitation into prestigious gifted and talented programs. Students in higher grades gain the assistance needed to help them plan for college, and recent research indicates that undergraduate students who receive coaching are more likely to stay in college and graduate.” – Randy Resendez, Education Consultant San Antonio, Texas
