Cardinal Raymond Burke Speaking at Call to Holiness Event
Cardinal Raymond Burke accepted the invitation to speak at a conference of the non-profit Call to Holiness, Inc. in Detroit. His topic is “Keeping Faith in a Time of Confusion.” There is even more confusion now than when the topic was chosen!
Cardinal Burke has been an episcopal advisor of Call to Holiness since 2003 when he spoke at the annual Detroit conference while he was Bishop of LaCrosse, Wisconsin. It was only months before his appointment as Archbishop of St. Louis.
The conference dinner with Cardinal Burke as the keynote speaker will be held at Athena Hall in Roseville, just outside Detroit’s northeast side on Saturday, October 26. Following the dinner will be a Holy Hour at Assumption Grotto. On Sunday, the Cardinal will be the celebrant of a Pontifical Extraordinary Form (Tridentine) Mass at 11 a.m., also at Assumption Grotto, Detroit. Those who register for the Saturday dinner will receive priority seating in the church. Provisions are being made for overflow attendees to see the simulcast in the parish gymnasium.
