The Origins and Development of Priesthood in the First and Second Millennium will be presented by Anthony Padovano at the St. Mark Lutheran Church in Morristown on Sun., Sept. 17 at 3:30 P.M.
Padovano holds doctorates and professorships in theology and literature. He is the author of 29 books, including three award-winning plays, translated into nine languages. A visiting professor at 25 American colleges and universities, he lectures worldwide and appears in the media on both sides of the Atlantic. His personal and professional papers are in the permanent archives of the University of Notre Dame.
A founding member and a distinguished professor emeritus, he taught literature and philosophy for 45 years at Ramapo College in New Jersey. He served for 30 years as the pastor of The Inclusive Community, where Catholics and Protestants worship together; and as the first elected president of CORPUS for ten years. He now serves as the CORPUS Ambassador. For 42 years, in the U.S. and abroad, CORPUS has been working for a renewed priesthood of married and single men and women rooted in a reformed and renewed Church.
The Padovano Peace Pavilion on the campus of Ramapo College serves as a gathering place for worship and reflection. Modeled after the United Nations Meditation Room, the center is open to all people of good will for tranquility and reflection.
A liturgy will follow the talk. There is no charge for the program. All are welcome. For more information go to www.votfnj.org or call 973-539-8732
