The Pallium Lecture is a presentation selected by Archbishop Jerome E. Listecki to focus on catechetical formation and spiritual renewal.
This year we are pleased to welcome Reverend Anthony J. Pogorelc, S.S., M. Div. (St. Michael's College of the University of Toronto), M.S., Ph. D. (Purdue University 2002) a Sulpician priest and Vice Rector and Academic Dean at St. Patrick's Seminary and University in Menlo Park, California. He is also a research fellow at the Institute for Policy Research and Catholic Studies at The Catholic University of America and Director of Initial formation for the U.S. Province of the Society of St. Sulpice. Specializing in the sociology of religion, his research focuses on young adults, organizations, social movements and professional ministers.
"Individualism and the Common Good: Can inclusivity trump autonomy in the quest for a better world?"
Individualism can express values of human dignity or narrow interests. Our Catholic tradition encourages an inclusive individuality that promotes relationships that contribute to the common good. Drawing on the resources of our faith, how can we assess social conditions in Milwaukee and respond to them in a manner that builds a culture of solidarity?
Born and raised in Milwaukee, Fr. Pogorelc was baptized at the old St. John's Church on 9th and Mineral. He attended Holy Trinity Grade School and received his first communion and confirmation there. He graduated from Don Bosco High School, and regularly returns to Milwaukee to visit his parents, brothers and their families.
