I am sending an essay by my friend Dr. Eugene Fisher of the National
Conference of Catholic Bishops giving some history of the Workshops and
information about the upcoming one. I would be happy to send a brochure to
anyone who requests one, as well as to provide a list of the plenary sessions
and workshops to post to the list. If anyone would like to help publicize
the event by putting up a poster, I'd be happy to send them.
Thanks for your assistance.
