FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AURORA, Il (May 7, 2013) - Internationally acclaimed speaker and best-selling author Scott Hahn will be guest presenter at “Our Response to the Trinity,” a seminar that will be held from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Saturday, May 25, at Christ the King Catholic Parish, 1501 S. Main St., Lombard. Hahn’s topics include “The Lamb’s Supper,” “The Bible, the Eucharist, and the New Evangelization” and “Lord Have Mercy.”
Ticket purchase as soon as possible is encouraged because of limited seating availability. Cost of tickets through Sunday, May 19, is: adult, $20; religious, $10; young adults (aged 13 – 25), $10; and a family of four, $50. Afterward, ticket prices increase by $5. Tickets for youths aged 12 and younger are $5 no matter when purchased. Tickets include a bag lunch, and handicapped seating can be arranged.
The day will begin with registration and prayer at 8:00 a.m., followed by Mass at 9:00 a.m. and the seminar at 10 a.m. The seminar is being sponsored in cooperation with the Holy Trinity Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Charismatic Prayer Community of Christ the King Parish.
In “The Lamb’s Supper,” Hahn will help people understand the Book of Revelation in light of the Mass, a heavenly liturgy so powerfully and beautifully described in the Book of Revelation.
Hahn will explore the New Evangelization in “The Bible, the Eucharist, and the New Evangelization,” delving into why it is the greatest priority of the Catholic Church at this time. He also will discuss why Blessed John Paul II taught that Catholic evangelization must be based on the Eucharist, what difference the Eucharist makes in explaining Jesus’ death and resurrection, and how the Catholic faith can be shared with family, friends and co-workers.
In “Lord Have Mercy,” Hahn will discuss the power of confession and its critical role in bringing healing and promoting spiritual growth, especially in today’s world rife with anxiety and uncertainty.
Hahn, also an exceptionally popular teacher, has delivered thousands of presentations on Scripture, theology and the Catholic faith. He has appeared on hundreds of television programs on the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN), where he has been the host and presenter on several 13-week series, including “Our Father’s Plan,” “The Lamb’s Supper,” and “Genesis to Jesus.”
Among Hahn’s best-selling books are “Rome Sweet Home,” “Hail Holy Queen,” “A Father Who Keeps his Promises,” and “First Comes Love.” He also has written many academic publications, and is editor of the periodical “Letter & Spirit: A Journal of Catholic Biblical Theology” and co-editor of the “Ignatius Catholic Study Bible.”
Founder and president of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology in Steubenville, Ohio, Hahn was awarded the Fr. Michael Scanlan Chair of Biblical Theology and the New Evangelization at the Franciscan University of Steubenville in 2012, where he is a faculty member. Previously, he was awarded the Pope Benedict XVI Chair of Biblical Theology and Liturgical Proclamation at St. Vincent Seminary in Latrobe, Penn., and the Pio Cardinal Laghi Chair of Catholic Theology at the Pontifical Seminary Joesphinum in Columbus, Ohio.
“Our Response to the Trinity” is part of Christ the King’s official observance of “The Year of Faith,” Oct. 11, 2012 – Nov. 24, 2013, as proclaimed by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.
