Our friend and frequent contributor Archbishop Charles Chaput will be speaking at this year’s meeting of the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars. The group, whose membership includes several members of First Things ’ board, is meeting in Baltimore from September 24th to 26th. The theme is “Catholicism in America.”
The group was founded about thirty years ago as a faithful alternative to all the dissenting groups, to gather scholars who saw traditional Catholicism as an aid to thinking well and not an impediment. Here’s their history .
Update : Since I mention him, here are the four most recent “On the Square” articles by the archbishop: Fire on the Earth , Glorify God by Your Life , Suing the Church , and The Captivity of “Catholic” Witness .
