CCMA: Campus Ministers
CCMA: Development Institute
Empowered: Reflections for Catholic Ministry in Higher Education
2013 CCMA National Convention Audio Keynote Presentations
From January 8: Carolyn Woo, Ph.D.
From January 9: Edward P. Hahnenberg, Ph.D.
Dr. Edward Hahnenberg is the holder of the Jack and Mary Jane Breen Chair in Catholic Systematic Theology at John Carroll University. He will address the second pillar of our theme, “Reflecting on how we receive and respond to the light of Christ in our lives, our vocation at its core.” As campus ministers, we are not only called by God, we are also agents of God’s call. We receive and we respond. How are we extending God’s call to others? How are we helping others discover their vocation? This session begins with Vatican II’s broad and inclusive notion of vocation, and explores the relevance of this ancient category for our own ministry today. In the language of “call” we find a fruitful alternative to our contemporary culture of “choice”—one that awakens the incredible gift and the radical challenge of Christian life today.
From January 10: Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, OFM Cap.
Most Reverend Charles J. Chaput, OFM Cap, Archbishop of Philadelphia, will speak on the third pillar, addressing "how that spark, that vocation, that ministerial call can be lived out in our Church at its most fundamental level, the parish, and how our work is critical to evangelizing and calling forth our students to be future parish leaders." His experience and leadership in the Church will serve him well to speak on our final pillar of the conference theme.
