On Wednesday, March 11, at 10 am, Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradiaga, SDB, Chairman of the Council of Cardinals advising Pope Francis, will have a special event for religious sisters, brothers, and priests serving in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati in celebration of the Year of Consecrated Life. He will present a talk entitled “The Joy of Consecrated Life: New Wine in New Wineskins” in the Bartlett Pastoral Center at the Athenaeum. This talk is by invitation only, but if you’re interested in viewing it, the St. James Project will live stream it here to this site.
Later the same evening, at 7:30 pm, the Cardinal will present a talk entitled “The Vision of Pope Francis for the Church” as part of the LeBlond Lecture series.
