  • Dr. John Grabowski Presents at Plenary Session of National Association of Filipino Priests

    On Wednesday, November 8th, Dr. John Grabowski, and his wife, Claire, gave a presentation to a plenary session of the Third Assembly of the National Association of Filipino Priests in Houston, TX. The presentation was entitled "Amoris laetitia: A Lay Perspective.": While most of the attention devoted to Pope Francis's Apostolic Exhortation on the Family has focused on chapter 8 and what it does and does not say about ministry to the divorced and civilly remarried, there is a wealth of ideas in the rest of the document which can enrich ministry to marriage and family in the Church. In particular, the document's focus on post-Cana accompaniment of married couples and on skills needed for a healthy marriage are potential game-changers for those who seek to better form couples and families to live their vocation as domestic churches.
