Commended to your attention is this summer’s conference at Portsmouth Abbey, Catholicism and the American Experience. Leading the speakers is our own George Weigel, who’ll be talking on “Catholics in an Unfamiliar America.” Other speakers include the Bishop of Providence, Thomas Tobin, Roger Kimball, the editor of The New Criterion, former New York Times religion editor Peter Steinfels, and Orthodox writer Jim Forest, a friend and comrade of Dorothy Day’s. The event includes daily Mass, various social events, and a harbor cruise to boot.
Friends who went to previous conferences have recommended it with enthusiasm. Information can be found here.
