The challenges of health care are not just political challenges, or financial challenges, or clinical challenges. They are moral challenges, and our tradition speaks to those moral issues. This talk will take us beyond the basics to deepen our knowledge about the implications of our tradition for health care policy.

Each generation has a particular way of looking at the world, and we in the Church need to be able to speak the Good News to different generational cultures. How can we do that most effectively? This presentation will draw new insights from national research data, and will identify some principles and practices for reaching out to those Catholics who are less actively involved in their faith.
