Morning keynote address: “God is on the journey too: do not be afraid, we are never alone.”
The morning keynote, delivered by Father Richard Fragomeni, will celebrate the depths of insight and meaning of St. Teresa of Avila’s quote in light of our Christian spiritual journey.
Father Richard Fragomeni is a priest of the Diocese of Albany, New York and has been a member of the Catholic Theological Union (CTU) faculty in Chicago since 1990. His teaching involves him in Roman Catholic theology, interpretation theory, and poetry. His current work is in the field of word and sacrament: the intersection of symbolic activity and language as it creates insights into the Christian proclamation of grace. Central to this work is a fascination with the power of liturgy and preaching in the transformation of the human heart.
Father Richard is an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Religious Studies at DePaul University. He also serves as the Rector of The Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii, an Italian-American spiritual center in Chicago's historic Little Italy. In addition to his teaching duties he is a preacher of parish missions and gives presentations nationally and internationally on liturgical, sacramental, and catechetical topics.
He is author of Come to the Feast and co-author with Br. Michael McGrath, O.C.F.S., of both Blessed Art Thou Mother, Lady, Mystic, Queen; and At the Name of Jesus: The Way, The Truth and The Light. He has published In Shining Splendor: 50 Eastertime Meditations, and The Eucharist: 50 Questions from the Pews.
Afternoon keynote address: “Trails of Light”
Knowing that stories can help us look inside and understand our own stories, storyteller Gail Froyen will highlight a variety of spiritual journeys. Some of the journeys are only a few steps long, while others stories wind, twist, and turn to bring the listener to continued self-discovery.
