Lecture series: Speaker is Dr. Zeni Fox
MADISON -- Dr. Zeni Fox, associate professor of pastoral theology at Immaculate Conception Seminary located at Seton Hall University in New Jersey, will deliver the next address in the St. Thérèse of Lisieux Lecture Series on Thursday, Oct. 17, at the Bishop O'Connor Catholic Pastoral Center in Madison.
Fox is an advisor to the U.S. Bishop's Subcommittee on Lay Ministry. Her books, New Ecclesial Ministry: Lay Professional Serving the Church and Forging a Ministerial Identity, have become valuable resources for those in ministry. She holds a Ph.D in theology from Fordham University in New York.
Her address will focus on laity's role in realizing the mission of Christ. The lecture, dedicated to the issue of lay involvement in the church, is seen as central to accomplishing the goals of the lecture series, which include promoting knowledge of the Catholic faith and tradition, preparing the faithful for a more fully conscious and active participation in the mission of Christ, and providing moral testimony which demonstrates the social consequences of the demands of the Gospel.

New series at cathedral designed for young adults
MADISON -- Young adults in the Diocese of Madison are invited to attend Theology-On-Tap, a four-week speaker series designed to address the needs and concerns of those in their 20s and 30s.

Sponsored by St. Raphael Cathedral Parish and the Diocese of Madison, each session of the series starts at 7:30 p.m. on Thursdays, beginning Sept. 19, at St. Raphael Cathedral, 222 W. Main St.
"Theology-on-Tap has been underway for many years now in some of our neighboring dioceses and has proven effective in attracting the 20- and 30-year-old Catholics," said Msgr. Dan Ganshert, rector at St. Raphael Cathedral.
