Forums on Faith and Work kicks off fall series

Wednesday, August 14, 2013 2:05:00 PM

The Saint Clare Center for Catholic Life has launched the new season of Forums on Faith and Work. 

Donna Orsuto

This breakfast series is designed to illuminate discipleship for the business community by focusing on the interplay of faith and work in light of the Gospels. 

To kick off the new season, Dr. Donna Orsuto, co-founder and director of the Lay Centre in Rome, presented “To What Are We Called? Holiness in the Workplace” Aug. 14. During the forum, she will provide context and examples of everyday holiness – sometimes emerging from unlikely places.

The upcoming sessions of the series include:

The Most Rev. Jerome E. Listecki, Archbishop of Milwaukee

Who Do You Say that I Am? Living the Good News in the Workplace

Archbishop Listecki was installed as Archbishop of Milwaukee on Jan. 3, 2010. He previously served the Church as Bishop of La Crosse (2005-2010) and Auxiliary Bishop of Chicago (2001-2005). The son of a Southside Chicago tavern owner, he was ordained to the priesthood in Chicago by Cardinal John Cody in 1975. A military veteran, he spent 20 years as a chaplain, and retired with the rank of lieutenant colonel. In spring 2013, Archbishop Listecki released his first pastoral letter for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee titled, "Who Do You Say that I Am?" He will address the challenge of everyday discipleship using the pastoral as his foundation.
