Webinar Series

The Roundtable organizes webinar discussions on practical topics of greatest interest to the membership. Recent topics have included Moving the Mission to the Middle of the Church, Using Games to Teach Catholic Social Teaching, What’s at Stake in the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act.

The Fall 2017 webinar series titled, Ministry on the Margins, seeks to provide diocesan social action directors resources and suggestions on how to address the issues of same-sex attraction, migration, and racism. The majority of social action directors are responsible for one, if not all, of these ministerial areas. All of these issues bring the Church outside of herself to the peripheries of our society, which is what the Gospel and Pope Francis are calling us to do. "We must open ourselves to the peripheries, also acknowledging that, at the margins too, even one who is cast aside and scorned by society is the object of God's generosity," (10/12/14). Please join us for one or all three parts of the series!



Rev. James Martin, SJ kicked-off the fall webinar series, Ministry on the Margins, on September 12, 2017 with his presentation titled, On the Peripheries: Building Bridges with the LGBT Communities.
