People in the Metro Detroit area may be interested in this talk by Joseph Pearce. From our parish bulletin, in the pastor’s column, Fr. Perrone writes:
News item! Those of you who try to keep abreast of the great Catholic revival that is slowly taking place side by side with the many horribly bad things that we often hear about may know that there is a brilliant Catholic writer, a convert to the faith, who has written books on some of the giant Catholic literary figures such as Chesterton, Belloc and their company. His name is Joseph Pearce and his books are published by Ignatius Press. He will be here, in two weeks, on Sunday November 20th at 2:30 p.m. in the gym speaking on** “The Wisdom of G. K. Chesterton in the Modern Age”**. This special event does come to us at a cost, however (Mr. Pearce has to make a living, and his profession is writing and speaking: a rather hard way to survive!). He is being sponsored here by The Grotto Press which, as you may know, was begun here for the publishing of Catholic reading materials. The cost of his lecture is $10/person, $15/couple and $20/family… This promises to be a unique and most interesting offering. Please tell all your Catholic friends and students about this special event. It’s not often that most of you are able to attend a talk of this caliber. So, please do get the word out and plan to attend the event yourselves.
If you are in the area, stop by.
