More on the Church's Semana Social

  • The webpage of Havana archdiocese magazine Espacio Laical has the program (pdf) of the Church’s Semana Social conference (see column at right) and promises to publish the texts of presentations at the conference.

  • A reflection on the Church’s current activities by Tom Garofalo appears at the Havana Note. Which leads me to a correction: the conference is taking place not in the aula magna of the University of Havana, but at that of the University’s Colegio San Geronimo, just off the Plaza de Armas.

  • According to La Jornada, Archbishop Mamberti’s opening remarks at the conference were about the “laity of the state” and had a “doctrinaire tone, without allusions to the situation of the local Church.” [Note: A reader tells me the topic is better translated as "The Secularism of the State" and says the Archbishop was referring to Cuba's secular state "as distinct from the previous atheist state."]
