  Noontime Plenary  
11:30 - 1 p.m. Process Theology in Practice

A facilitated discussion open to all registrants. Ignacio Castuera will conduct the Lunchtime Plenaries gleaning from his fifty years of ministry in two countries. This year's plenaries are building on the idealized shape of Ignacio's own ministry as he tried to do the Liturgical, Educational, and Social Action tasks of ministry. A great time for class attendees to get to know each other and share ideas.

No Charge for the plenary; $10 for lunch; open to all registered students.
