BISHOP JOHN MCCARTHY - Off the Cuff & Over the Collar - RESCHEDULED FOR 8/19
Monday, August 19 at 7PM
Off the Cuff & Over the Collar: Common Sense Catholicism reflects Bishop McCarthy’s life-long liberal, inclusive, ecumenical views, shared with a healthy portion of his Irish wit and wisdom. His nearly fifty bite-sized essays deal with contemporary topics for the modern family with Catholic connections (whether happily current, disenchanted or former Catholics): divorce, women’s role in the Church, healthcare, birth control, death and dying/end of life issues, the Pope, marriage, and more.
Bishop John McCarthy has been a priest since 1956, and became the Bishop of Austin in 1985. Now retired, he still is deeply involved with St. Edwards University, Seton Medical Center, and many secular organizations in Central Texas.
