Workshop Offerings:

The CLSA is proud to offer the following workshops in conjunction with the 2011 Convention in Jacksonville, FL. Pre-Convention workshops run from Sunday morning, October 9, 2011 at 9am until Monday, October 10, 2011 at 12noon.
  • A. Hierarchical Recourse: Can’t We All Just Get Along?
    • Presented by Rev. Msgr. Patrick Lagges and Sr. Lynn McKenzie, OSB
      • As people become more aware of their rights in the Church, more are seeking recourse against decisions of those in authority. This workshop will examine the canons dealing with dispute resolution, the ways of avoiding contentious processes, and the methods of hierarchical administrative recourse. This will be done from the perspective of assisting someone who wishes to approach the Holy See (Congregation for Clergy or Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life), and from assisting a superior against whom hierarchical recourse has been proposed (diocesan bishop or religious superior). Some case work will be involved.

  • B. A Telescopic Probe into the Structural and Dynamic Aspects of a Defective Consent in Light of Evolving Doctrine and Jurisprudence
    • Presented by Rev. Augustine Mendonça
      • How does an act of matrimonial consent become substantially defective? And how to prove such a defect? This workshop will focus on a critical analysis of these two questions and to find appropriate answers from a practical point of view in light of recent Rotal jurisprudence.
