Father Bill Atkinson:
A Cause for Sainthood in the Catholic Church

Stephen McWilliams, PhD, MFA, lecturer and author

Thursday, September 9 • 1:30 p.m.

In the 2,000-plus-year history of the Catholic Church, Bill Atkinson was the first quadriplegic to be ordained as a priest. After a tragic accident and many challenges, he was ordained and would go on to teach for many years at Monsignor Bonner High School. Needing a great amount of daily care, he was blessed with the friendship of Stephen McWilliams, who for many years visited and helped him with his personal needs. After Father’s death, Mr. McWilliams captured Atkinson’s wisdom, humility, and great faith in his book Green Bananas. Now, Mr. McWilliams has joined with the Augustinian Consecrated Community, family, and friends to work for the cause of sainthood for Father Bill. Come and hear this amazing story and be a part of this sainthood journey.

He was able to make blockbuster movies with MGM and Warner Brothers and capped off his image by playing The Great Caruso. Mr. Lanza’s career tragically came to an end when he was just 38. Steve Pollack, a polished performer, director, actor, and lecturer will create a presentation of Lanza’s life using a multi-media program, live performance, and lecture narrative.

poetry

AUTHOR’S CORNER:
PLEASURES OF POETRY – CREATION & APPRECIATION

David P. Kozinski, author

Friday, October 22 • 1:30 p.m.

Whether reading poetry, hearing it spoken or writing it, taking pleasure in the joys of language, from the grandest effects to its minutest details, is essential. Where pleasure is derived, understanding will follow. For too many, poetry is a chore to be gotten through in high school and left alone thereafter. Lack of exposure, indifferent teaching, and the many activities that vie for our leisure time all contribute to the neglect of this ancient and very lively art. Using examples from his own writing and great works of the past, award-winning poet and mentor, David P. Kozinski will discuss what makes a great poem – what to look and listen for – and how recognizing these elements can deepen the experience of poetry and make our writing more expressive and enjoyable for others.

ADMISSION: Free with donation to the Dr. Margaret Mary Kearney Scholarship.
