February 2011 Audio Conference
Presented by Carla Mae Streeter, O.P. Th.D.
Bernard Lonergan? Who? What was his contribution, and why can it be important and helpful to us who minister in pastoral care? Our NACC 2011 Conference Planning Task Force chose to include Bernard Longeran’s insights into the theme of this coming year’s conference. Dr. Carla Streeter, OP, a Lonergan scholar at Aquinas Institute in St. Louis, noted for her passion for Lonergan and her ability to make Lonergan’s contributions understandable and applicable to those not familiar with him, will be providing us these audio conferences. Her presentations will address in session one “Who is Bernard Lonergan? What is he up to? Why is this significant?” and in session two “Lonergan and Pastoral Care, Caring for Conscious, Recognizing Conversion, and Being Authentic.” Please join us!
