From a reader…
As I mentioned on Family Formation Saturday, there is a very exciting (a once in a lifetime) event that is taking place in Ottawa on March 8th:
Every Year Catholic Christian Outreach (CCO) hosts a “Meet the Movement” fundraising event and to introduce the movement to new supporters. For 2010, CCO has the privilege of hosting Joseph Cardinal Levada, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, for an evening of celebration on March 8th, 2010. Cardinal Levada will take the opportunity to share his thoughts on “The Catholic Faith: Why Is It Worth Passing On?”. As you know, the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith is the position Cardinal Ratzinger held before his election to become Pope Benedict XVI. The chance to be present with one of the leaders of our faith in Ottawa is a rare opportunity that I expect few people would want to miss. This exciting event will take place at the Westin Ottawa on Monday, March 8th, 2010. As this is a fundraiser, tickets are $125 per person and include a charitable tax receipt of $60 per ticket.
I am seeking your suggestions regarding attendees. We have just begun to announce the event to the broader community and we expect that it will sell out quickly and I would appreciate your input on those who would be excited to attend.
As you know, CCO is dedicated to fulfilling this challenging task: reaching our future leaders on the university campuses, challenging them to fully live their faith then sending them out to reach the world with the message of our faith, Jesus. They strive to share the great hope of the Gospel message with young people so that they come to know the love of God and are able to share his message effectively with others. Hundreds of students respond and join in this great work each year. Recently Andre and Angele Regnier, CCO’s Founders, appeared live on “Life on the Rock” on EWTN, the US based Catholic Television Network. There is great hope in our Church!
