Mr. McClory will relate his research on the early church to his experience with the Dutch Dominican theologians (NCR, Nov 2007, and Mar 2008), in the context of the transforming presence of IECs.

Themes for other sessions include "Women in Ministry," "Spirituality in Community," "Priesthood of the Faithful,"  "Young Catholics and IECs".  Speakers and panelists are being contacted.

Good News! Generous contributions from more than 20 communities made it possible for us to break even on the Gathering.  Warm thanks to those who contributed.  Additional funding will be needed to maintain our website and keep in touch with folks who have registered and made their contact information available.
