Patristics in the Parish

Want to move to a parish with its own patristic studies program? Look into St. John the Evangelist in Stamford, CT, where pastor Msgr. Stephen M. DiGiovanni has founded the St. Monica Institute for Patristic Studies. The Institute sponsors visiting lectureships (including Cardinal Avery Dulles!), ongoing classes, and a Latin reading group.

Until I see evidence of other parishes proving me wrong, I’ll go on record saying: It takes an Italian-American.
