4-01 Young Adult Catholics Claiming Their church in a Post-Vatican II AgeDr. Tom Beaudoin
Forty years after the Council, the graying of the Vatican II generation, coupled with skepticism about reforming the Church by young Catholics, raises the question whether there is a real future for the voice of young Catholics. All who are passionate about building solidarity among young adult Catholics in ministry are invited to this session. We will discuss the agenda for young Catholics today and next steps toward realizing that agenda.
4-02 Family at the Heart of the ChurchDr. Kathleen O’Connell Chesto
Family is not just the object of the church’s ministry; it is an important source of revelation for the institutional church. How can we affirm the religious vocation of parenting, encourage prayer and ritual in the family, and support the family’s sense of mission? What is the particular message the family has for the institution? How does the family encourage and shape the institution’s prayer and mission? If family were truly at the heart of the church, what would the church look like?
4-03 The Bully, The Bullied, and The Bystander: Breaking the Cycle of ViolenceBreaking the cycle of violence involves more than identifying and stopping the bully. It requires we examine the why and the how a child becomes a bully or a victim (and sometimes both) as well as the role bystanders play in perpetuating the cycle and in breaking it. The session will explore giving kids the tools to stand up for their own rights while respecting the rights and legitimate needs of others, handle conflicts non-violently, act with integrity when confronted with situations such as peer pressure to cause harm, and develop a personal code for doing what is right in spite of external consequences and never merely because of them.
