You are invited to attend an upcoming virtual forum organized by members of the Commonweal community at St. Gertrude's Church.  Jon Nilson will be one of the speakers. 

“Rending/Mending the Seamless Garment: Voting Catholic.”   

The Commonweal community of St. Gertrude Catholic Church is planning a virtual forum on this topic for Sunday, August 23.  

Jon Nilson, Professor Emeritus of Theology at Loyola University Chicago, and Heidi Schlumpf, Executive Editor of The National Catholic Reporter, will address the problem of political partisanship within our Church today and how Catholics can better promote the fullness of Catholic teaching.  

The forum will begin at 2:00 p.m. and last for about an hour. There will be opportunity for questions and discussion. All are welcome.  

For more information, including how to join the forum, visit e-grapevine.org/Rending-Mending. 

We hope to see you virtually on Aug. 23. Please feel free to share information about the forum widely.
