Now we set our faces like flint toward Illinois for the event my son calls “Patristipalooza.” This year’s theme is “The Fathers, the Family and the Culture of Life.” It’s all day Saturday, October 13, 2012, at St. Lambert’s Parish in Skokie. I’ll be speaking; so will Father Richard Simon (Rev. Know-It-All on Relevant Radio); and patristic scholar James Papandrea.

It’s a great slate of talks, and a beautiful opportunity for conversation. And there will be door prizes donated by the Ancient Coins in Education program: books, more books — and, of course, ancient coins.

Check it out — and join us!

In addition to Patristipalooza, there are two other events.

Jim Papandrea will perform Friday night, October 12, in an Adoration Concert to benefit the Women’s Center and Emmaus Ministries. The concert’s at St. Lambert, 7-8:30 p.m.

And Sunday, October 14, I’ll be speaking about the Mothers of the Church at Our Lady of Ransom Parish in nearby Niles.

Please tell all your friends in Chicagoland! I hope to see you at ALL the events.
