What is the mission of the laity in the Church and the world? How ought lay Catholics to be formed for that mission?
These are questions for the whole church. Today’s guest, Fr. Michael Sweeney, has been working for decades to push these questions to the forefront. But, rather then just advocating for their importance, or merely thinking about them, he’s been doing things. Lots of things, including founding a new lay mission project in the Diocese of Sacramento. You may know Father Sweeney as the co-founder of the Catherine of Siena Institute, or President of the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, Where he served from 2004 – 2015.
He joins show host, Leonard DeLorenzo, as part of a swing through the Midwest where he is traveling to give talks related to the laity and rebuilding the Church in a time of crisis.
