Join us at our February Executive Speaker Series featuring Dr. Janet E. Smith – and celebrate Mardi Gras!
Dr. Smith recently retired from Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit, MI. She is a former consulter to the Pontifical Council on the Family and the author of Humanae Vitae: A Generation Later and A Right to Privacy. Dr. Smith served as a member of the Anglican Roman Catholic International Commission, III for 8 years.
She has a regular column in the National Catholic Register and has received three honorary doctorates and several other awards for scholarship and service. She has appeared on the Geraldo show, Fox Morning News, CNN International, CNN Newsroom, AlJazeera and has done many shows for various series on EWTN.
Come hear Dr. Smith talk about the challenges young professionals face in understanding a church engulfed in so much recent controversy; how the Church is in dire need of young Catholics who can be genuine witnesses in the world; and how young Catholics can work – personally and professionally – to lead our Church in this next decade.
