The Nassau Community College Center for Catholic Studies Presents"Anglicans/Episcopalians Looking to Rome: 1570-Present"
Garden City, N.Y. The Nassau Community College Center for Catholic Studies is proud to present the event Anglicans/Episcopalians Looking to Rome: 1570-Present which will take place in the College Center Building on Friday, November 6 at 7:30 p.m. Well known Catholic author Monsignor Daniel S. Hamilton, Ph.D. will be the featured speaker during the program.
Dr. Hamilton is a member of the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars. He earned his Ph.D. at the Greenwich University School of Theology in the United Kingdom. Dr. Hamilton is pastor emeritus of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Lindenhurst; a former editor of the Long Island Catholic newspaper; and a former ecumenical officer for the Diocese of Rockville Centre. In addition, he has published scholarly work in such publications as Homiletic and Pastoral Review, Ecumenical Trends and the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars Quarterly.
Anglicans/Episcopalians Looking to Rome: 1570-Present will deal with those Anglicans and Episcopalians who have sought, officially or quasi-officially, some form of corporate reconciliation with the Catholic church from the time of the Elizabethan Settlement in 1570 to the present day. Dr. Hamilton's lecture leads up to Pastoral Provision, a statute approved by Pope John Paul II in 1980, that facilitates the reception of Episcopal clergy, religious and laity into the Catholic Church while at the same time enabling them to retain elements of their liturgical and spiritual heritage.
Anglicans/Episcopalians Looking to Rome: 1570-Present, which is co-sponsored by the NCC Center for Catholic Studies and the New York Regional Chapter of the Society of Catholic Social Scientists, is free and open to the public, but requires both registration and a parking permit. To register and receive a permit, contact the NCC Office of Lifelong Learning at 516.572.7472.
