2010 Annual Lecture
Practical Theology and Religious Education: A Needful Partnership
Dr. Thomas Groome
On September 22, 2010, the Center for Practical Theology hosted the third annual lecture and dinner. We were fortunate to have as our guest lecturer Dr. Thomas Groome, Professor of Theology and Religious Education and Chair of the IREPM Department in Boston College’s School of Theology and Ministry. His lecture was entitled “Practical Theology and Religious Education: A Needful Partnership.” Dr. Groome demonstrated this partnership with charisma as he paused several times mid-lecture to offer the audience a chance to discuss and engage his topic via small groups. In the end, his case for a more intentional and vibrant collaboration between religious education and practical theology was convincing and enthusiastic. We are thankful for his willingness to join us for our annual lecture.
We hope you enjoy pictures from the event (with thanks to Xochitl Alvizo, who captured these photos).
