During this rare full-day session, Fr. Barron will present two topics: the Mystery of the Eucharist, and Catholicism — what Catholics believe and why — using the arts and beauty of Catholic tradition as a lens. The Catholicism presentation is an exclusive opportunity to hear Fr. Barron speak first-hand on his sweeping documentary “Catholicism” premiering on PBS television networks the following week.
Fr. Barron is a theologian, author, and a sought after speaker. He is the founder of Word on Fire ministries (www.wordonfire.org), and the creator and host of the highly anticipated PBS documentary “Catholicism.” Locally and internationally, thousands tune in to hear his engaging homilies, radio broadcasts, view his YouTube videos, and read his books and blogs. Fr. Barron has a wonderful down-to-earth way of distilling complex theological concepts and bringing home difficult topics. His ministry has helped many people apply the Gospel message to their life. Mayslake Ministries, located in Lombard, IL, is a not-for-profit Catholic organization which for 20 years has fostered the spiritual growth of Chicagoland adults with retreats, spiritual direction, and formation programs such as the fall symposium.
