2017 Winter Heart to Heart

Rabbi Abraham Skorka, Cardinal Donald Wuerl and a number of other rabbis and academians from both Catholic and Jewish faiths participated in a Catholic-Jewish Dialogue at Saint Vincent in the fall of 2016. Coverage of the event is included in this edition of Heart to Heart. Along with news of monks, upcoming ordinations, the issue contains features on a National Catholic Art Show at Saint Vincent, and an inaugural Blue Mass which honored firefighters, EMS and police officers.
