TAPtalk 1: We are Family by Fr. Rick Kramer

Director for the Office for Family Life, Fr. Rick Kramer will share with us the ridiculously obvious answer to the meaning of family life. He will challenge us to celebrate the gift and joy of family and will share 5 time-tested tools, no matter your state in life, to purposefully build a culture of family life.

TAPtalk 2: Friendship on Death Row by Dani Clark

Friendship between members of the Catholic Community of Sant’Egidio and prisoners on death row form the foundation of the community’s work to end the death penalty around the world. As advocates for peace, the Community believes that capital punishment–as a symbol of the involvement of the state in a process of death, in the destruction of human life–must be overcome. Washington, DC community member Dani Clark will share her personal story of friendship with Texas death row inmate Ivan Cantu, the unexpected gifts of this unlikely relationship, and what faith has to do with it.

Dani Clark has been a member of the Community of Sant’Egidio in Washington since 2000, after having met the community while living in Rome as a volunteer in a L’Arche community. A writer and editor for an international development organization, Dani lives in Washington with her husband and seven year old son.
