From Lay Apostles to Missionary Disciples:
Fr. Thomas A. Judge and the Future of Catholic Laity

Join us in-person or “virtually” for the first Sundays at CTU program of the year as we welcome presenter William L. Portier.

In celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Missionary Servants of the Most Holy Trinity (Trinity Missions) this presentation will discuss the challenges of the order’s founder, Father Thomas A. Judge, CM, and Pope Francis as he tries to shepherd the church toward Evangelii Gaudium’s vision of a church that, rather than clinging to its survival and institutional maintenance, goes forth as bands of missionary disciples.

3 pm Sunday Eucharist
Celebrant Rev. Michael Barth, ST

4 pm Lecture
From Lay Apostles to Missionary Disciples:
Rev. Thomas A. Judge, CM and the Future of Catholic Laity
