Workshop Offerings:

The CLSA is proud to offer the following workshops in conjunction with the 2012 Convention in Rosemont (Chicago), Illinois. Pre-Convention workshops run from Sunday morning, October 6, 2012 at 9am until Monday, October 8, 2012 at 12noon.
  • W1. Mine, Yours, and Ours: Canonically Altering Parishes and Churches in the 21st Century
    • Presented by Very Rev. Lawrence A. DiNardo and Rev. Edward M. Lohse
      • This pre-convention workshop will explore parish reconfiguration in the 21st century. The following are specific issues to be addressed:
      1. An exegesis of the relevant topics regarding parish mergers, alterations, and the reduction of a church building to profane but not sordid use
      2. The role of pastoral planning in parish reconfiguration
      3. Canonical requirements in parish reconfiguration and the closure of churches
      4. Process of appeal to the Congregation for the Clergy
      5. Process of appeal to the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura
      6. Practical drafting of decrees and other appropriate canonical documents
The workshop is intended to be interactive and participants will be engaged in some group activity to sharpen their canonical skills.
  • W2. Making for a Better Fit: More on U.S. Tribunals and the Roman Rota
    • Presented by Most Rev. Msgr. David-Maria A. Jaeger, OFM
      • This workshop will examine clues and observations on how U.S. Tribunal cases can be "read" at the Rota, and how U.S. Tribunals can be most helpful to the parties across the Atlantic Ocean, in the Pope's own court.
