Jamie Manson

Download Format(s) :
MP3
$10.00


  • Most Catholic reform movements are founded on calling the institutional church to be faithful to the words and deeds of the gospels. This work is challenging and, for many, increasingly discouraging. If we reflect on our day-to-day lives in light of Jesus’ teachings and example, we may discover that the church we seek is already fully alive.
  • Jamie L. Manson received her Master of Divinity degree from Yale Divinity School where she studied Catholic theology and sexual ethics. Her weekly column, Grace on the Margins, appears in the National Catholic Reporter. As a lay minister, she has worked extensively with New York City’ s homeless and poor populations.

MP3
$10.00


  • The exclusion of women from the priesthood is a grave injustice against women, against our Church and against God who calls both men and women to be priests. We will explore the sin of sexism in the Catholic Church, the issue of power claimed by an all-male priesthood – and what we can do to bring about gender equality and justice in the Church.
  • Roy spent 4 years in the military and received the Purple Heart in Vietnam. After the military, he entered Maryknoll and was ordained in 1972. After working with the poor of Bolivia and El Salvador, Roy founded the School of the Americas (SOA) Watch. He has spent over 4 years in prison for protesting the SOA. In 2008, the Vatican ordered Roy to recant his public support of women’s ordination or be excommunicated. He informed the Vatican that, in conscience, he cannot recant. In 2010, Roy was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
  • Alta Jacko earned a Master in Pastoral Studies from Loyola University of Chicago, was ordained a priest in 2009. A reflection of attentive listening, observing and responding to the movement of the Holy Spirit within and around her, is the Church without Walls, listening to God’s people wherever they are, on the bus, on the train, in the grocery store or delivering mail. A reflection of the reciprocity of being present to others on the path is spiritual direction. A reflection of the teachings of Jesus is presiding at liturgy for a diverse community. An active participant in an ecumenical faith sharing group is the ministry of sharing and proclaiming God’s word. She earned a Master of Education from the Chicago Conservatory of Chicago, a Master of Jurisprudence from Loyola University of Chicago in Child and Family Law and completed the requirement for teaching at the University of Chicago. She is a retired teacher with eight children, sixteen grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

$10.00


  • Reflecting on Old Testament and New Testament injunctions, this workshop will focus on the questions of why we have neglected the prophetic tradition in contemporary Christianity and do we have the courage to “pay the price of the ticket” (in the words of James Baldwin), especially remembering that we must prepare a welcome table for the poor, the “widow, the orphan, and the stranger among us.”
  • Joseph A. Brown, SJ; Ph. D., is Chair of the Department of Africana Studies at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. His most recent books are: Sweet, Sweet Spirit: Prayer Services in the Black Catholic Tradition (with the assistance of Rev.

The Silencing of (Catholic) Women: Then and Now
Sr. Chris Schenk

Download Format(s) :
MP3
$10.00


  • Early women leaders, whose teaching and evangelizing were foundational to the spread of Christianity were progressively forbidden to do either. By the fifth century (with some notable exceptions) they were excluded from church preaching and governance. And still today. Sadly, this early suppression came to be revered as “the unbroken tradition of the Church” despite significant evidence to the contrary. This workshop will explore trajectories suppressing women’s leadership found in early writings and their implications for the ongoing struggle for women’s equality in Catholicism today. Practical strategies for healing institutional deafness to “Women of the Word” will also be discussed. Includes newly available slides of 4th century women leaders from the Pio Christian museum.
  • Sr. Chris Schenk CSJ is the Executive Director of FutureChurch. She has Master’s degrees in midwifery and theology and, with the able assistance of FutureChurch staffers, developed and administers four national dialogue projects - Women in Church Leadership, The Future of Priestly Ministry, Celebrating Women Witnesses and the Save Our Parish Community project. In 2007 and 2008 Schenk, coordinated an international effort to “put women back in the biblical picture” at the Synod on the Word. She is currently working on a pictoral history of women leaders in early Christianity.

$10.00


  • What does the Church have to say to advanced U.S. capitalism and why isn’t it saying it? The session will look at the characteristics of advanced capitalism, Catholic social teaching on economics, and related Gospel tenets. We will probe how the capitalist culture is silencing the gospel and the Church, and choose actions to sustain our economic voice with a gospel perspective.
  • Angie O’Gorman’s essays have appeared in America Magazine, Commonweal, and the National Catholic Reporter. She has taught Theology for Peacemakers at St. Louis University, worked on human rights issues in the United States, Central America and the West Bank, and developed skill sessions on nonviolence for use in a variety of contexts.

  • Appropriating a Catholic understanding of Trinity supports notions of God as radical love, thus illuminating a God of inclusion, communion, and participation. Exploring tenants of social Trinity (e.g., Boff and Moltmann) and the post-modern perspective (e.g., Marion), this session will focus not on the ‘mental gymnastics’ of trinitarian doctrine, but on practical implications and challenges of understanding God in a manner which supplants traditional ‘God as monarch’ conceptions of power and possession.
