Cordially invites you
to attend the 12th annual
William E. Simon Lecture
A Reformed Church in a Culture in Crisis
EPPC Distinguished Senior Fellow
Tuesday, February 5, 2013
The Mayflower Hotel
1127 Connecticut Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20036
In this Simon Lecture, Mr. Weigel will trace the thesis of his new book, Evangelical Catholicism: Deep Reform in the 21st-Century Church, arguing that the Catholic Church is on the threshold of a bold new era in its two-thousand year history. As the curtain comes down on the Church defined by the 16th-century Counter-Reformation, the curtain is rising on the Evangelical Catholicism of the third millennium: a way of being Catholic—both ancient and new—that offers to the world a deeply humane alternative to the soul-stifling self-absorption of postmodernity, and that challenges deep currents in contemporary American culture.
The lecture will be held in the State Room with a reception to follow. Books will be available for purchase after the lecture.
