“Catholic Media: Reporters or Teachers – Prudently Countercultural or Indiscreetly Accommodating?”
The Pallium Lecture, a presentation selected by Archbishop Jerome E. Listecki, is an opportunity for the faithful to learn from national and international experts on a variety of topics that are pertinent to Catholic life in today’s world.
After faithfully carrying on the tradition of the Pallium Lecture initiated by then Archbishop Timothy Dolan in 2003, Archbishop Listecki is introducing a new format for the 2016 Pallium Lecture – the moderated conversation. To this end he has chosen Fr. Matt Malone, S.J., President and Editor in Chief, America Media, and Anne Thompson, Environmental Affairs and Vatican Correspondent, NBC Nightly News, to participate in a vigorous and thought provoking exchange moderated by Deacon Michael Bowen, retired lawyer and member of the ministry team at St. Monica’s Parish, Whitefish Bay. Examining some of the conflicting ethical issues of Catholic journalists, their search for truth when conducting interviews, and the new challenges of social media, Archbishop Listecki expects that this new format will engage the audience, intellectually and emotionally, in the topics and questions being examined and will generate continuing discussions in their homes, their parishes, their prayer groups, and their leadership gatherings.
The evening is sponsored by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee with funding from The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation. It is open, free of charge, to everyone. For additional information, contact Connie Bach at (414) 236-5499.
