Did you know we have someone right here in the Des Moines diocese who assisted at the Second Vatican Council? Monsignor Larry Beeson was there, assisting our very own Bishop Edward C. Daly, who served at the landmark council. Hear what Msgr. Beeson has to say about it on Saturday, Jan. 26 as the diocese continues its celebration of the Year of Faith with an in-depth look at Vatican II. Join us from 9-2:30 p.m. In addition to hearing Msgr. Beeson share his experience, we'll also hear Matthew Halbach, director of the St. Joseph Eudcation Center in West Des Moines. He'll explain for us the framework of Vatican II and its implications for today. Lunch will be provided so make sure you let us know if you're coming. you can RSVP by sending a quick note to Sherri Simmer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
