Theological Group Book and Dinner Initiatives

Bishop and Theologians Reading Groups: This year you are once again invited to organize small local reading groups of CTSA members of up to ten people to meet with at least one local bishop, to study and discuss a mutually chosen theological text, possibly in the context of a shared meal. The board will fund up to ten such groups for a maximum of $500 each; the funds are meant to cover the cost of books and dinner. We suggest that groups choose a classic theological text or perhaps the recent papal encyclical, Laudato Sí, for discussion. Groups are asked to submit a request for funding for the board consideration by October 1, 2015 that will include 1) the names of the participants; and 2) the text(s) that you will be discussing. The proposals can be e-mailed to The board will consider applications and make approvals during the Board’s fall meeting later in October.
