How can faith be relevant in today’s culture to anyone; young or old, Christian or otherwise? By examining this question across a wide spectrum of the aspects of life: the arts, education, parish life, and politics, Monsignor Lorenzo Albacete served as a witness for how Christians can engage with the world fully without losing sight of what is Christian in Christianity.
On the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the Monsignor’s passing, the Albacete Forum and the Catholic Information Center invites the public for a discussion with Kathryn Lopez, Fr. Lee Fangmeyer, and Helen Whitney on what his writings and perspectives offer to our engagement with the current cultural, social, and religious dialogues we face daily.
