Thursday, October 13, 7:30 to 9:00 p.m., Parish Center

why-the-catholic-church-must-changeMs. Nutting Ralph is director of the Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies program at Lexington Theological Seminary and teaches at St. Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology. She is the author of numerous books and articles on religion, the Catholic Church and scripture. The title of the book, the author writes, inevitably triggers a wide variety of reactions. While we all believe in genuine progress and needed reforms, many become nervous with the mere suggestion of very major changes in the structure or practices of the Church we have known and loved for so long. This is not a “radical” book in any sense – it is a calm discussion of issues, causes and proposals well-known to thinking Catholics, an effort to improve the conversation we all should be having about the future of the Church.
