On October 26 and 27, the Society of Catholic Social Scientists (SCSS) will meet at Kellenberg Memorial High School in Uniondale, Long Island. The 20th anniversary event will feature speakers from the Catholic clergy, religious, and laity, addressing a wide range of subjects. It is open to the public at a modest fee; pre-payment is required. See the SCSS website for details (click here).
The Catholic League will be well represented. The co-founders of the SCSS, Dr. Stephen Krason, a political scientist at the Franciscan University of Steubenville, and Dr. Joseph Varacalli, a sociologist at Nassau Community College, have largely planned the event. Both serve on the Catholic League’s board of advisors and will speak at the conference. Other members of the advisory board will also speak.
Father Philip Eichner, chairman of the board of directors of the Catholic League, will open the conference at 9:00 a.m. on October 26; he will be speaking on “Marianist Pedagogy as an Agent of the New Evangelization.” Dr. William Donohue will speak at the Luncheon on October 27 on his new book, Why Catholicism Matters: How Catholic Virtues Can Reshape Society in the 21st Century.
Hope to see you there.
