VOTF hosts women and Vatican II go

The public is invited to St. Rose of Lima Church in Topsfield tomorrow from 7-9 p.m. to hear Francine Cardman, Ph.D. from Boston College. Her talk is “Vatican II, Women, and the Church Today.” The lecture will look at the council’s legacy in regard to women: their presence at Vatican II, participation in ecclesial ministries, authority as theologians, changing familial roles and social roles, and the implications that they have for theology and church practice. This presentation will be the second lecture of the faith education series by the North Shore Seacoast VOTF Affiliate in collaboration with Boston College Theology and Ministry School.

Refreshments served and free-will offering always appreciated. For further information, call Mo Donovan, 978-518-0133, or Eleanora Paciulan 978-462-4882, or John and Barbara Gould, 978-535-2321.
