If you’re within driving distance of Youngstown, Ohio, please do yourself a favor and mark your calendar — right now — for Tuesday, September 8, at 7 p.m. That’s when the great David Mills is speaking to the Society of St. John Chrysostom. His topic is “Sharing Mary: How to Talk to Protestant and Secular Friends about the Mother of God.” The evening will also include a panel discussion.
In addition to being my godson, David is author of many books, most recently Discovering Mary: Answers to Questions about the Mother of God. This is a title you must own. (I mean that as only a truly Sicilian godfather can mean it.)
The event takes place at St. Edward Catholic Church, 240 Tod Lane, Youngstown, Ohio 44504. The sponsoring organization, SSJC, promotes ecumenical dialogue of the east-west variety. Most members belong to Orthodox or Catholic churches, but everyone’s welcome to the event, and admission is free.
